The experience opened to the public in mid-March. Tickets for the event went on sale in January but quickly sold out, breaking several records in the process. Event organizers announced this morning that the program is being extended and will remain open in Vancouver until September 7. Starting Saturday, July 10, the exhibition will also be expanding its weekend hours of operation, opening at 8:30 am.

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 spans 30,000 sq ft within the convention centre. 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.
