Van Gogh Alive – the world’s most visited multi-sensory experience celebrating the world’s most famous artist – is set to land in New Zealand in 2021.

You’ve surely seen Van Gogh’s works before, from The Starry Night to his Self Portraits to Sunflowers and The Night Cafe, his works are some of the most instantly recognisable. Throw in the celebrations throughout pop culture, including Midnight In Paris or even Emily In Paris and you’re sure to be quite familiar.

But we are certain you’ve never experienced Van Gogh’s works like this.

Make no mistake, this isn’t an ordinary art exhibition. Bringing together over 3,000 of the Dutch master’s works, Van Gogh Alive is the large-scale, multi-sensory experience that has already wowed more than six million people across 50 cities around the world.
