Here's some exciting news for art fans in Israel: The Israel Convention Center in Tel Aviv will be home to the "Van Gogh Alive" multimedia exhibition, a sound and light experience featuring the artwork of Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh from February 3 to March 3, 2013.
The groundbreaking exhibition, which has previously been displayed in Istanbul, Ankara, Phoenix and Singapore, has been viewed by more than 300,000 people around the world and includes 360-degree life-like images of the works of Van Gogh projected onto massive HD screens, as well as the ceiling, walls, pillars and floor.
The exhibit covers Van Gogh's artwork from 1880 to 1890, and reflects his time in Arles, Saint Rémy and Auvers-sur-Oise, the locations where he created many of his most famous masterpieces. The work can be seen in hyper-fine detail, with special attention paid to key features, allowing visitors to study color and technique. Photographs and video have also been augmented with Van Gogh's works to demonstrate his sources of inspiration. Synchronized to a classical score, more than 3,000 Van Gogh images at enormous scale fill giant screens, walls, columns, ceilings and even the floor.
