VAN GOGH THROUGH THE LENS OF MODERN TECHNOLOGY AT THE ATHENS CONCERT HALL

From November 7 through March 5, 2018, the unique works of the Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh will be presented at the Athens Concert Hall in a special exhibition combining image and sound to create an interactive relationship between visitors and these remarkable paintings. 3,000 sketches and paintings of Van Gogh will be projected on 1,500 square meters of walls, columns, ceilings and floors using a new system of advanced technology capable of producing 3-D images of startling clarity and fidelity, further enhanced by high-quality sound.

A journey into the life and emotions of the great painter

The aim of the exhibition’s curators is to produce a multi-featured digital journey through the works of the great Dutch painter and to bring to life the places where he lived and created. With the help of technology, this digital journey explores Van Gogh’s art and career and delves into his troubled emotional “universe”, which impelled him to the extremes of creativity and demanded agonizing efforts for its achievement.

The exhibition has already toured 35 cities around the world and has been visited by more than 10 million people.
