Three immersive Van Gogh exhibits are coming to Boston and New York this year – and we’ve got all the details.
The first, “Imagine Van Gogh,” debuts Dec. 21 at the SoWa Power Station in Boston. It will feature more than 200 of Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings projected onto soaring walls and other shapes, so viewers feel like they’re immersed in them. The exhibit focuses on art created during his time in France, specifically Arles, Saint-Remy-de-Provence and Auvers-sur-Oise, with famous works like “Cafe Terrace at Night,” “Starry Night Over the Rhone,” “The Red Vineyard” and various self-portraits represented.
It promises a contactless experience within 24,000 square feet of space, with timed-entry tickets and social distancing measures in place.
Billed as the “original” immersive experience, the show is the brainchild of artistic directors Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron and is also being shown in Vancouver and Edmonton, Canada.
You can purchase tickets, which start at $33.99, here. The exhibit runs through Feb. 20, 2022.
“Immersive Van Gogh,” the second show, opens June 10 at a “secret” location in New York. The popular exhibit was featured in the Netflix series “Emily in Paris,” and promises viewers an immersive experience within 300,000 cubic feet of the artist’s most famous works, including “Starry Night,” “Sunflowers” and “The Potato Eaters.”

Lighthouse Immersive is producing the show, along with Visioni Eccentriche, Starvox Exhibits, ShowOne Productions and Maestro Artist Management. It will feature timed tickets, reduced capacities and temperature check for ticket holders.
It’s also traveling to Toronto, Los Angeles, Chicago and other cities. Tickets start at $39.99 and can be purchased here. The New York show runs through Sept. 6.
The third production, “Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience,” is a little more vague. It’s coming to New York July 1, at a “secret” central location where the artist’s works will be transformed into two-story projections within 20,000 square feet of space. There guests can learn more about Van Gogh’s life, his influences and approach to his art.
A separately ticketed virtual reality experience will walk viewers through eight of his most famous paintings, including “Bedroom in Arles” and “Starry Night Over the Rhone.”
You can find timed tickets, which start at $36, here. The virtual reality portion requires an additional ticket. The show, which runs through Sept. 26, is being organized by Exhibition Hub and Fever. It’s also coming to a secret location in Boston Oct. 6, running through Jan. 16, 2022. You can find tickets here.
