Organizers said the exhibition was designed to grow new audiences for one of the world’s most respected painters.
The exhibition features thousands of 360-degree lifelike images of Van Gogh’s works. Fully-synchronized background music enhances the visitor’s experience.
Van Gogh is particularly respected in his home country Holland for his works’ emotional honesty and bold color. A fellow Dutchman said the exhibition was a great way to make Van Gogh, one of the most influential painters of the last two centuries, more accessible to the general public.
Visitors at the exhibition are surrounded by moving 360-degree views of Van Gogh's colorful works, including his own portraits and diary entries.
More than 3,000 images fill giant screens, walls, columns, ceilings and even the floor to immerse the visitor in color and detail. One art-lover said the vivid details and increased scale of the exhibit gave a special outlook on Van Gogh's unique style.
"Van Gogh Alive" was created in Australia. The interactive installation has already toured Turkey, Singapore and the United States, and will be on display at the Israel Trade Fairs and Convention Center in Tel Aviv until March 3.
