amsterdam [ENA] On 14 March, the 'Meet Vincent van Gogh Experience' opens in the cultural heart of Barcelona (Port Vell). Based on the knowledge and expertise of the Van Gogh Museum, this travelling 3D experience invites visitors to journey through the fascinating life of Vincent van Gogh. The Meet Vincent van Gogh Experience explores the story of the man behind the world-famous painter and the motives of his artistry: to offer

hope and to express his emotions, in all their cruelty and mystery, but also in their beauty. Adriaan Dönszelmann, Managing Director of the Van Gogh Museum: "With this new location for Meet Vincent van Gogh, we support our mission to make the life and work of Van Gogh and his contemporaries, and the art of his time, accessible to millions of people all around the world. The Experience previously won the prestigious Thea Award for entertainment, offering confirmation that it contributes to this mission. Such a concept makes it possible for the Van Gogh Museum to offer a Van Gogh Experience simultaneously in multiple places. Vincent van Gogh is hugely popular in Southern Europe. We are therefore pleased that the new location is

is in Port Vell, Barcelona’s old harbour, allowing us to bring something unique to this popular Spanish city, for both its visitors and its residents. We have two sets of the Experience and are proud to already announce that the second set will also be on show this Spring. Just now the word is out that this set will travel to Seoul, Korea for all Asian Van Gogh fans to see."

Visitors to the Meet Vincent van Gogh Experience journey through the intriguing life of Van Gogh, guided by life-sized projections of works, photographs and film fragments, detailed reproductions, multimedia interactives and applications, theatrical pieces of scenery, audiovisual scenes and quotes taken from more than 800 letters. The audio tour brings numerous figures to life: Vincent van Gogh himself, his brother Theo, his sister-in-law Jo Bonger, his mother and other key players. Surrounded by lifelike theatrical pieces of scenery from locations including the Parisian cafe Le Tambourin, the hospital in Saint-Rémy to which Van Gogh was admitted for a period of time and the Yellow House in Arles, visitors are transported back to key

key locations in Vincent’s life. The attention to detail in Meet Vincent van Gogh is tremendous: the reproductions of Van Gogh’s palette and other materials are true to life. Visitors can use a perspective frame just like Vincent’s, and even the famous pair of shoes depicted in one of his renowned works has been faithfully reproduced. Meet Vincent van Gogh is primarily focused on visitors experiencing, discovering and trying things for themselves. On doing as Van Gogh did, in order to get closer to the life story and the world of this acclaimed artist. For example, in the opening scene, visitors find themselves in the middle of the wheatfield where Van Gogh fatally wounded himself.
