Van Gogh Dublin: An immersive art exhibition is coming to the RDS

If you don't know a lot about Vincent Van Gogh, he's generally considered to be one of the greatest post-impressionist artists of all time (don't tell Rembrandt).

Visitors can step into his world, literally.

An art exhibition with a three-dimensional twist celebrating the work of Vincent Van Gogh is coming to the RDS in May.

Vincent Van Gogh is generally considered to be one of the greatest post-impressionist artists of all time (don’t tell Rembrandt). Known for his expressive and dramatic brushwork, the man who famously cut off his own ear became wildly popular after his death, with his work selling for record-breaking sums towards the end of the 20th century.

Art buff or not – you’ll know this man’s work when you see it. This exhibition is truly unique and reflects our digital age by offering up a new way of experiencing classical art. Liberating the pieces from their two-dimensional form the exhibit is a 20,000 square foot, light and sound experience featuring two-story projections of the Dutch artist’s most compelling works.

The iconic artworks will be projected on the floors and walls so visitors can truly become immersed in the experience.

The brainchild of Dublin based company Theatre of Light, the exhibition has received rave reviews in cities across the world, from Tokyo to London. Speaking about why the experience is so incredible, Project Director Jillian Wilson said:

“You get to walk through the fascinating and tragic life of Van Gogh, through his carefully curated artworks, chosen to fully absorb you in a multisensory experience, with mind-blowing audio-visual effects.”

As part of the experience, visitors will also be given the chance to view three award-winning existing contemporary pieces of digital artwork, that take the visitor beyond Van Gogh, on a journey of the evolution of Art, Science and Light.

A sensory extravaganza not to be missed, sign us up!

Pre-sale tickets for the exhibit are available from today at for €23. General admission tickets go on sale Tuesday 22nd of February. All Covid-19 rules and guidelines will be strictly followed.
