The life and legacy of Vincent van Gogh comes leaping off the canvas in this multi-sensory tribute to one of Western art’s greatest names.

131 years after his death, Van Gogh Alive turns the art world on its head, using the latest audio-visual technology to transport the viewers inside Van Gogh’s greatest masterpieces. From swirling night skies to the eye-popping yellows of his iconic sunflowers, Van Gogh Alive uses giant screens, a rich classical score and over 3,000 images to create an immersive experience tracing the story of Van Gogh’s final decade and its prolific, tragic crescendo.

In a world-first, the internationally acclaimed Van Gogh Alive will be housed in The Grand Pavilion, a specially designed and constructed 20,000 square foot immersive gallery.

The creation of Australian company, Grande Experiences, this international sensation has toured more than 60 cities around the world and comes to Adelaide after a blockbuster Sydney season.
