Hyderabad showers its love and appreciation with all shows sold out for days
Hyderabad: While Dutch Post-Impressionist master Vincent van Gogh’s 2,100 artworks are scattered round the globe in museums and private collections, immersive experiences that turn the walls and floors of an exhibition space into a kind of van Gogh dream world have popped up around the world from New York to New Delhi, and now has set up home in Hyderabad for the first time.

Hyderabad is hosting its first-ever van Gogh-themed immersive exhibition, ‘The Real Van Gogh Immersive Experience’, at the HITEX Exhibition Centre, which has been extended till April 23. The timings for the Hyderabad exhibition – that began on March 29 - are from 1.30 pm to 9 pm, with last entry at 8 pm.

“We always had very high expectations of Hyderabad, and we haven't been left disappointed,” shares brand ambassador and co-curator Nikhil Chinappa. “Watching art enthusiasts – young and old – and van Gogh newbies lose themselves in van Gogh’s artistic brilliance and vivid colours, brought to life via pioneering 22k projection, has been immensely satisfying to watch. Hyderabad has shown us tremendous love, and we have extended the exhibition till April 23 due to popular demand. And we may extend further by a few more days if Hyderabad wants us to,” he adds.

The Real Van Gogh Immersive Experience brings out the colours and emotions of the Dutch master’s paintings via an unparalleled visual spectacle, boasting India’s first 22K lumen projection and largest screens in India, and a specially created music score by Mitch de Klein that breathes new life into van Gogh’s timeless masterpieces.
