“Immersive Van Gogh” has returned to New York City. The showstopping exhibit from the creator, Massimiliano Siccardi, had closed in September following a season of frequently sold-out dates and now will reopen much to the joy of art lovers everywhere.
Hundreds of Images
"Massimiliano Siccardi selected the images. We have licensed over 400 Van Gogh images from the greatest museums in the world. This is the raw material that Siccardi uses to deconstruct, sample, animate the pieces and create our installation,” Producer Corey Ross tells us. The exhibit features over 600,000 cubic feet of digital art. It allows visitors to walk through some of Vincent Van Gogh’s most renowned pieces, including La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom, 1889) and Nuit étoilée (Starry Night, 1889).
The Original Exhibit
While multiple Van Gogh exhibits are currently roaming the world, “Immersive Van Gogh” is one-of-a-kind and truly an original in itself. “We believe artists create art, and because of this, our installations are at a completely different level. We have the world’s greatest immersive art installation creator in Massimiliano Siccardi, and expressly for New York and Las Vegas, our physical space is designed by David Korins, who designed sets for the Broadway show “Hamilton.” What is fascinating is how Siccardi and Korins refract and reflect, reinterpret and bring their own artistic sensibility to Van Gogh. This is the ultimate artistic collaboration,” Ross tells us. “This is a completely new medium. It marries art exhibition as you are seeing Van Gogh’s art, with film making, which is technically what Massimiliano does—he creates an animated film, and experiential where the public walks through the art itself, all of which is a completely new way of experiencing art. It’s so rare in life that a new medium like this emerges, and it’s so exciting.”
“Immersive Van Gogh” tickets start at $39.99, and dates are available from November 17 until January 2 at Pier 36, 299 South St., www.vangoghnyc.com.
