Held under the patronage of the Ministry of Culture & Knowledge Development, Art lovers will be able to view the Dutch post-impressionist’s most famous works during multi-media exhibition’s three-month visit to the UAE.


This fully immersive audio and visual show offers visitors a unique way to experience Van Gogh’s masterpieces. No ordinary exhibition, Van Gogh Alive combines a specially chosen score of classical music with over 3000 images. Some of the artist’s most famous paintings as well as other inspirational images are all displayed on the walls, floor and ceiling of the exhibition space using 40 high-definition projectors.



Visitors are introduced to a unique symphony of light, colour and sound as famous artworks are shown in their entirety, broken down into highlighted sections or magnified on a huge scale. The carefully selected soundtrack invites art lovers to immerse themselves in the wonderful detail and vivid colours of Van Gogh’s paintings, uncovering the subtle meanings and ideas behind the artist’s most famous masterpieces. 


Born March 30th 1853, Vincent Willem Van Gogh is one of the most famous and influential figures in the history of western art. He created more than 2,000 works of art, including 860 oil paintings, before his death on July 29th 1890. While Van Gogh’s work has been on display in museums and art galleries around the world for more than 100 years they have never been shown in this manner.
