After passing through Quito, the immersive technology exhibition with 200 paintings by Dutchman Vicent Van Gogh will arrive in Guayaquil on June 7.
In 2022, Quito was amazed by the exhibition “Van Gogh Alive, a Real + Immersive experience “. And from June 7, 2023, the renowned exhibition, present in five countries in the region, will be in Guayaquil.
The exhibition of 200 paintings is inspired by the works of one of the geniuses of art: the Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh.
But it contains an additional element: the help of immersive technology to make the painter’s colors and paintings leave the frames and come ‘alive’.
Immersive technologies are a set of tools that introduce the user into a virtual environment, usually through some device, such as augmented reality glasses or special applications.
In the case of the exhibition, projected in the capital, there was an immersive and multimedia room with huge panels that recreated scenes from Van Gogh’s works.
And in Guayaquil, the exhibition will be open in the parking lot of the Policentro shopping center, in the north of the city. It will be available until September 15, 2023, but could be extended based on public acceptance.
30 state-of-the-art projectors and live narration by expert guides will be used to transport people to the painter’s time.
“It is an experience that allows one to learn and understand the life and art of Van Gogh through sight, hearing and all the senses”, the creators of the show point out.
The exhibition is part of the billboard of the organization Arriba El Telón Latinoamérica , in an effort to revive museums and art with the help of technology.
This company has been responsible for other artistic and technological events, such as ‘Bodies’, real human bodies, which was presented in Guayaquil in 2021.
