Imagine Van Gogh Immersive Exhibition

Imagine Van Gogh pays tribute to the genius
of Van Gogh’s work and life.

130 years after his death, Vincent Van Gogh remains one of the most famous artists of all time. His brushstrokes are widely recognizable and his fandom spans the globe.

Celebrated for both his artistic practice and his persona, the artist produced an oeuvre that stands among the most recognizable art in the world. The distinctive style of his popular paintings defined by thick, painterly brushstrokes and a bright color palette, the luminous landscapes, expressive portraits, and vibrant still lifes have come to represent the artist.

Van Gogh’s art became astoundingly popular after his death, especially in the late 20th century when his work sold for record-breaking sums at auctions around the world and was featured in blockbuster touring exhibitions.

Imagine Van Gogh, an immersive exhibition

Imagine Van Gogh, is an exhibition where one can admire The Starry Night, Irises and Sunflowers, or be drawn into the intimacy of his Bedroom in Arles. An experience that brings viewers to the heart of its images, Imagine Van Gogh is accompanied by the music of the great composers Saint-Saëns, Mozart, Bach, Delibes and Satie.

Imagine Van Gogh amplifies emotion

The warping techniques used for Imagine Van Gogh adapt the surface to the projected image, thus respecting the latter’s integrity to magnify the artworks, whereas more traditional mapping techniques focus on adapting the image to the surface. Warping consists in perfectly adjusting the projected work to the scenographic surface. This technique frees the work from the gravitational subjection that befalls any earthly object. The choice of images, the way they are positioned, their rhythm and their association with the music all compose this original creation conceived by Annabelle Mauger and developed with Julien Baron.

Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel Exhibition

Arguably one of mankind’s greatest artistic achievements, Michelangelo’s frescoes on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome are timeless masterpieces. Whether you have seen them in person or not, Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition will allow you to immerse yourself in the art from a new perspective in an innovative and unique way.

The exhibition’s museum-quality, nearlife-size photographic reproductions of the iconic master’s frescoes were created with special expertise and care using state-of-the-art technology. To help people engage with and comprehend the artwork, the paintings are displayed on 16-foot panels in 34 parts.

As you observe the artwork, you will be overwhelmed by its dimensions, your closeness to the picture, and the modern style of the exhibition. You’ll be able to explore the scenes, including The Creation of Adam and The Last Judgment, at a close distance impossible to achieve in the Sistine Chapel.

“We are thrilled to serve as the only Washington state venue for Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition,” said David Fischer, executive director of Broadway Center. “We look forward to welcoming thousands of visitors from near and far to the awe-inspiring experience of viewing larger-than-life reproductions of these beloved works in an up-close and intimate way.”

The exhibit debuts on Sept. 21 at the historic Tacoma Armory at 715 S. 11th St. and runs through Oct. 14 (dark Mondays and Tuesdays). An optional audio guide with narrative accompaniment will be available in four languages. Advance tickets are on sale at broadwaycenter.org, in person at the Broadway Center box office at 901 Broadway, or by phone at 253.591.5894.
