The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City will present a huge, multimedia Van Gogh exhibition, “Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience,” from July 8 to Aug. 28.
The exhibition promises projections of more than 300 of Van Gogh’s artworks in a space of more than 30,000 square feet.
According to a press release, “Freed from their frames, Van Gogh’s spectacular paintings appear on projection-swathed walls inviting guests to fully immerse themselves into the incredible detail of his work and be enveloped in his ever-shifting, swirling and colorful flowers, cafes and stunning landscapes. And, hearing the artist’s own dreams, thoughts and words set to a symphonic score drives an unmatched narrative experience.”
This is different from the immersive Van Gogh exhibition that recently ran at Pier 36 in Manhattan.
Immersive art exhibitions — devoted to Van Gogh and other artists, including Picasso and Monet — have become popular throughout the world over the last 15 years, and there are currently several different companies presenting these kinds of shows, devoted to Van Gogh’s art, in the United States.
Tickets for the Atlantic City show go on sale Feb. 25 at vangoghatlanticcity.com.
