Van Gogh exhibit continues to amaze visitors
Winnipeggers have been treated to a spectacular exhibition of the works of Vincent Van Gogh since July 14 at the RBC Convention Centre and there’s still time to experience the wonder until September 4, 2022, when the exhibit closes.
Created by French-Canadian creative director Mathieu St-Arnaud and his team at Montreal’s Normal Studio, Beyond Van Gogh takes viewers on a mesmerizing journey inside the artist’s paintings, using over 300 of his works. The truly immersive experience incorporates both still and moving art. Freed from their frames, the works come alive, flow across multiple surfaces, appear, and disappear. Visitors can fully appreciate and experience all the extraordinary details, the brushstrokes, and the colours while walking among the vastly enlarged images of Van Gogh’s paintings projected all over the vast open space of the RBC Convention Centre. It is like stepping into a Van Gogh painting. The show displays Van Gogh’s iconic works as Sunflowers, Irises, Wheatfield with Crows, and The Starry Night, as well as his Japanese influences with the magnificent Almond Blossoms or his later The Church at Auvers. It also includes his Self-Portraits, the Portrait of Dr. Gachet, and La Mousmé.
The exhibit continues until September 4 at the RBC Convention Centre, 375 York Avenue in Winnipeg.
