Montreal is about to get coated with an exhibition of the works of Vincent Van Gogh, the Dutch post-impressionist painter who is among the most famous figures in the history of the art world.
The exhibition, Imagine Van Gogh, will take guests through the world of colours and emotions of Van Gogh’s works through gigantic murals and an immersive soundtrack.

First presented in Europe, Imagine Van Gogh is the work of artists Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron. Their approach is to fuse technology with classical art through the use of more than 200 works by the famous painter.
Imagine Van Gogh will highlight the works of the Arles period (1888-1889) and the end of his life (1890).
Works include Sunflowers, Irises, Starry Night, Wheat Fields, pieces from his Japanesery series, La Mousmé, Portrait of Dr. Gachet, and Van Gogh’s famous self-portrait.
Mauger and Baron have also chosen what they call “an appropriate” soundtrack to go along with the gigantic murals.
The exhibition starts on December 3 at the former Arsenal contemporary art shipyard in the heart of Griffintown.
When: Starts December 3
Where: Arsenal art contemporain, 2020 rue William
