The works of the worldwide greatest artist Van Gogh will be exhibited in Turkey, within the framework of activities organized in honor of the 100th anniversary of the founding of Abdi Ibrahim, the leading firm of the Turkish pharmaceutical sector. The exhibition which introduces the viewer with a new concept of museology by innovatively blending art, science and technology, takes art lovers on a journey through the history of painting.
The exhibition, „Van Gogh Alive”, which is a stunning fusion of art and technology that tells a single story with over 3000 digital images, offers an educational, entertaining and unique experience that combines traditional art with multi-media display technology and cinematographic direction. The exhibition, designed by Grande Exhibitions in Australia, will be displayed at the Istanbul Karaköy Antrepo from February 10 to May 15, and at Ankara Cer Modern from October 15 to December 30, after its world premiere at Singapore. The giant-sized and crystal clear images projected on the walls, columns, floors and even the ceilings looks so real that the viewer wants to touch them.
Accompanied by classical music, the exhibition impresses its visitors with a show of giant sized and frameless images, featuring Van Gogh’s most important works of art such as “Café Terrace at Night,” “The Red Vineyard,” “Chair and Pipe,” “Self-portrait with a Bandaged Ear,” “Vase with Twelve Sunflowers,” “Starry Night over The Rhone” and “Wheatfield with Crows.”
