TACOMA — Imagine Van Gogh the Original Immersive Exhibition in Image Totale featuring more than 200 of the Dutch artist’s paintings is making its debut in the Pacific Northwest this Winter at the historic Tacoma Armory. Imagine Van Gogh the Original Immersive Exhibition in Image Totale© has sold more than 500,000 tickets across Canada this past year. The exhibition will be also open in Boston on December 21 at the SoWa Power Station.
Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron, renowned for their work at Cathédrale d’Images in Les Baux-de-Provence, France, are the Artistic Directors behind the creation of the Imagine Van Gogh the Original Immersive Exhibition in Image Totale©. This unique exhibit brings Van Gogh’s canvases to life in a vivid, spectacular way: the audience will truly enter the artist’s world of dreams; visitors are transported on a journey to the heart of the artist’s work.
“Original canvasses are expanded and fragmented, then projected into unusual shapes to emphasize the mesmerizing exaggerations and distortions of Van Gogh’s work. Visitors experience their energy, emotion, and beauty like never before”.
