Van Gogh Alive Comes To Life At BGC Arts Center Taguig

Created and produced by Grande Experiences, Van Gogh Alive is a multi-sensory experience to entertain the whole family. For a limited time, visitors have the unique opportunity to experience Van Gogh’s art and venture into his world. Van Gogh’s works have been displayed and enjoyed around the world for over a century – but never like this. Van Gogh Alive at the BGC Arts Center is presented by the Bonifacio Art Foundation, Inc. with Del Monte Philippines.

Van Gogh Alive is the large-scale, multi-sensory experience that has inspired over 9 million people across 100+ cities around the world. The digital spectacular opens on Friday, 20 October 2023 for a strictly limited season at the BGC Arts Center, Taguig City.

Make no mistake – this is no ordinary art exhibition. Traditions of tiptoeing through silent galleries and viewing paintings from afar in quiet contemplation are forgotten as visitors find themselves interacting with art in ways they never imagined. From start to finish, visitors are surrounded by a vibrant symphony of light, color, sound and aroma that has been called an ‘unforgettable’ multi-sensory experience. Van Gogh’s masterpieces come to life, giving visitors the sensation of walking right into his paintings, a feeling that is simultaneously enchanting, entertaining and educational.

This year, the Bonifacio Art Foundation, Inc. takes Van Gogh Alive to new heights at the BGC Arts Center with more interactive, in-depth experiences, taking visitors on a historical art journey. Get to know Van Gogh and his artworks at the Introduction Hall. Be part of his story in the multi-sensory experience through the state-of-the-art SENSORY4™ immersive gallery. Draw Van Gogh’s famous artworks at the Art Studio, and take home your very own masterpiece. Capture creative photos at the Sunflower Mirror Room and Vincent’s Bedroom.

Van Gogh Alive is a fascinating, cohesive story about one of the greatest known artists in history,” said Maria Isabel Garcia, Managing Director and Curator of the Bonifacio Art Foundation. “It touches you on so many levels whoever you are. It is faithful to its promise to immerse you into the artist’s work, with glimpses into an inner life that led to his captivating masterpieces.  Van Gogh Alive will hold you long beyond your visit.

Grande Experiences’ state-of-the-art SENSORY4™ immersive gallery combines with a tailored exhibition space to allow projection of enormous crystal-clear images. Set to an evocative classical score, a thrilling display of over 3,000 inspirational images transforms the world around you. You will truly lose yourself the vibrant colors and vivid details of Van Gogh’s work.

Adults and children alike will forge their own paths and find their own meaning as they wander through the galleries, exploring hidden nooks, viewing artworks from new angles and discovering unique perspectives. Visitors have the chance to examine Van Gogh’s sources of inspiration via photographs and video displayed alongside his works. But for many, the greatest pleasure lies in simply standing still, indulging the senses as waves of sights and sounds, intense and beautiful, wash over them.
