After a successful Mumbai edition, the Van Gogh 360 exhibition is now in Delhi. The immersive experience brings us Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings in a never-seen-before way in India.
Thanks to Emily in Paris season 1, where the protagonist, Emily, and her love interest Gabriel have a moment sitting at a Starry Night light show, such immersive shows have become a household name. And, India is having its moment with more displays planned in Pune, Bengaluru, Hyderabad among other cities throughout this year.
What to expect at Van Gogh 360 Delhi?
Set up in the parking lot at DLF Surface (opposite Cyber Hub) in Gurugram, the exhibition is divided into two parts. As you enter, there’s a bar where you can get a drink to take with you inside. The first part is the education room, giving a glimpse into Van Gogh’s personal life, his mental health struggle, and his many paintings and how they came about.
Then you move into the immersive exhibition room. This is where the magic happens. The organisers have brought together almost 300 Van Gogh paintings to create this dynamic experience. Although there are ample opportunities to take pictures and videos, I would suggest finding a place to sit and just enjoy the moving paintings. From Starry Night to Almond Blossom and self-portraits, this is a delight for art lovers.
