Things to do in Dubai and Abu Dhabi will be given a boost this year as the globally acclaimed “Van Gogh Alive – The Experience” makes its way to the UAE. The exhibition opens on 14th January and is produced by “Grande Exhibitions” and organised by “6IX Degrees Entertainment”.
Make no mistake – this is no ordinary art exhibition and no ordinary activity in the UAE. Traditions of tiptoeing through unnervingly silent galleries and viewing paintings from afar in quiet contemplation are forgotten as visitors find themselves interacting with art in ways they never imagined. Van Gogh Alive – The Experience will become one of the best places to visit in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi and one of the best UAE attractions. It will stretch the definition of the word ‘exhibition’ as it stimulates the senses and opens the mind. And there’s no need to worry about the kids getting bored, Van Gogh Alive will entertain the kids as it caters perfectly to both young and old, and will rival the UAE’s oldest attractions.
From start to finish, visitors are surrounded by a powerful and vibrant symphony of light, colour and sound that compels them to leave the world behind and immerse themselves in what has been called an ‘unforgettable’ multi-sensory experience. Van Gogh's masterpieces come to life as visitors experience the sensation of walking right into his paintings - a feeling that is simultaneously enchanting, entertaining and educational. This is an experience you won’t find at any other of the UAE’s popular attractions.
Adults and children alike will forge their own paths and find their own meaning as they wander through the galleries, exploring hidden nooks, viewing artworks from new angles and discovering unique perspectives. Visitors have the chance to examine Van Gogh’s sources of inspiration via photographs and video displayed alongside his works. But for many, the greatest pleasure lies in simply standing still, indulging the senses as waves of sights and sounds, intense and beautiful, wash over them.
