Imagine Van Gogh, the immersive digital art exhibition taking place at the Vancouver Convention Centre, has announced that expanded hours and additional tickets have been added to its upcoming event.

The experience opens to the public on March 19. Tickets for the event went on sale in January but quickly sold out, breaking several records in the process. Event organizers announced this morning, however, that the program is being extended and will remain open in Vancouver until August 29.

The exhibition from Europe showcases over 200 of the famous Dutch artist’s paintings projected on eight-metre high walls. The original canvasses are then expanded, fragmented, and projected into different shapes to emphasize the mesmerizing exaggerations and distortions of Van Gogh’s work.

With projections that blanket high walls and floors, visitors are transported on a journey to the heart of the artist’s work — allowing the audience to “literally enter the artist’s world of dreams.”

The exhibition footprint inside the convention centre is 30,000 sq ft. For context, the total exhibition space at the Vancouver Art Gallery is approximately 41,000 sq ft. In accordance with British Columbia’s public health guidelines, the event is also contactless.
