  • SHOW INFO

  • About Immersive Van Gogh Charlotte

    From creators of the blockbuster show in Paris seen by over 2 million visitors and still wowing crowds in Toronto, the premiere of the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit will bring the art of Vincent to life in Charlotte.

    Experience art like never before – lose yourself in 300,000 cubic feet of flawless projections animating Vincent van Gogh’s oeuvre. Wander through entrancing, moving images that highlight brushstrokes, detail, and color – truly illuminating the mind of the genius.

    You will be immersed in Van Gogh’s works – from his sunny landscapes and night scenes to his portraits and still life paintings. The installation includes the Mangeurs de pommes de terre (The Potato Eaters, 1885), the Nuit étoilée (Starry Night, 1889), Les Tournesols (Sunflowers, 1888), and La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom, 1889), and so much more.

    Experience the organic landscapes of Van Gogh’s imagination, and journey through his brilliance and madness.

    Astonishing in scale and breathtakingly imaginative, you will experience Van Gogh’s art in a completely new and unforgettable way.

    The exhibit is designed and conceived by Massimiliano Siccardi, with soundtrack by Luca Longobardi, both of whom pioneered immersive digital art experiences in France.

    This exhibition contains sequences of bright flashing lights which may affect visitors who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy, as well as others who are sensitive to moving lights. Viewer discretion is advised.

    The runtime of one show is about 35 minutes. You can stay for as many runtimes as you want, once you enter. How much time you spend here is really up to you! Most people stay for 2 to 3 runtimes or more. It really is a great experience. On average patrons spend a little over an hour in the exhibit.

  • Location

    Making its mark in the heart of Charlotte

    Immersive Van Gogh will be presented in the historic Ford building at Camp North End, a state-of-the-art creative development with over 300,000 square feet of space already redeveloped for work, artistic expression, dining and hospitality, entertainment, recreation, and community building. For a list of things to do at Camp North End before or after your visit to Immersive Van Gogh, click here.  

    Earlier this year, the Ford Factory received a local historic landmark designation. Plans call for the space to be redeveloped into modern mixed-use space for office and retail, but this summer it will host one of the world’s most exciting art installations! 

    Ford building at Camp North End – 1774 Statesville Avenue, Charlotte, NC 28206

    For more information about Camp North End, visit the official Camp North End website at https://camp.nc/ or follow along on FacebookInstagramTwitter, and LinkedIn at @campnorthend.

    At Immersive Van Gogh and Blumenthal Performing Arts we believe that art is for everyone and that everyone deserves to enjoy art in their own way! Our Relaxed Performances are open (July 13th 10am and August 3rd 10am), welcoming, and accessible to all that want to experience the excitement of Immersive Van Gogh in a comfortable and low-key style. Relaxed Performances will have slight adaptations to the experience to offer anyone, including those with autism and developmental, sensory, or communication differences, a way to engage with the show in whatever way feels good to them.

    When attending a Relaxed Performance, you can expect:
    • A lower volume on the music, which accompanies the video display
    • Spaces right outside of the gallery that is free from video and loud sounds if you need a break
    • Quiet areas with sensory bins, tactile opportunities, and books
    • Professional teaching staff on hand to gently assist with wandering, defensive or quiet friends
    • A judgment-free “no shushing” experience where you’re free to roam, talk, laugh, touch the walls, lay on the floor and otherwise engage freely with the work at your comfort level!

    Relaxed performances are 60 minutes in length, typically occurring from 10:00-11:00 am on select dates.
