VAN GOGH 360 in Mumbai

What Is Happening

It is a dream come true for many. Van Gogh 360° has brought the world-famous immersive art experience of the renowned Dutch painter to Mumbai! The first showings started on January 20 and will be up for the audience till March 3.

"Vincent van Gogh’s paintings are some of the most recognisable in the world. His art deserves to be seen and experienced by Indian audiences — especially our children and younger generation," says Nikhil Chinapa, Van Gogh 360° India spokesperson, of the exhibit. "Taking art out of museums and making it accessible for audiences is imperative, and immersive exhibitions like this go a long way in introducing art in a fun and exciting way," he adds.

How Is The Venue & What To Expect

The Arcade Centre is a ten-minute taxi drive from Churchgate station. The show is set up on the ground floor and is wheelchair accessible. As we entered the exhibit, a line-up of highlights from Vincent Van Gogh's life had been portrayed. As we strolled through his journey, his paintings accompanied each story.

Later, we stepped into the show area, where an approximately twenty-minute screening of animated paintings by Van Gogh was showcased. The Starry Night, Sunflowers, Almond Blossoms, Starry Night Over the Rhône, Irises, The Potato Eaters, Café Terrace at Night, and several of his renowned paintings made appearances. Piano music complemented the experience, and there was seating space (and chairs, too) to make the audience feel comfortable. The one thing we found difficult to navigate was finding a quiet spot to enjoy the paintings due to the kids playing around.

The most comfortable part was that we could view the exhibit a number of times! With the curiosity and urge to take videos and photos, it's difficult to keep up with the time and at the same time enjoy the paintings. So, after taking gram-worthy footage, we peacefully indulged in the show!
