Step Into the Vibrant World of Vincent van Gogh
For over a century, the art and life of Vincent van Gogh have captivated the world. Born of passion and madness, Van Gogh’s colorful expressions of Dutch life in the second half of the 19th century dovetailed with his personal triumphs and tragedies to create an indelible story of artistry. Over the last few years, a cohort of artists and exhibitors has created the Immersive Van Gogh experience, where visitors can experience Van Gogh’s oeuvre like never before. Fortunate residents of the Lower East Side apartments for sale at One Manhattan Square live just minutes from the Immersive Van Gogh location in New York at Pier 36, which brings the largest version of the experience to Manhattan.
This tribute to the late-period Dutch master was created by a pair of Italian artists who were inspired to bring Van Gogh’s world to life. Renowned digital artist Massimiliano Siccardi began his career as a dancer before becoming inspired by immersive digital spaces and pioneering the use of projectors and video to recreate frescoes in their original locations. His theater background serves as the philosophical foundation for his exhibits, with the visitor always forming the nucleus of any piece. When creating the Immersive Van Gogh experience, Siccardi teamed up with his fellow Italian and friend Luca Longobardi, whose compositions are equally inspired by Beethoven and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, to write a unique soundtrack that would accompany the projects and create a fully mesmerizing aesthetic experience.
Visitors to the Immersive Van Gogh exhibit at Pier 36 walk through more than 500,000 cubic feet of exhibition space, every inch of which is filled by oversized projections of the master’s colorful paintings. Each room creates a different mood, be it the vibrant Sunflowers or the mystical Starry Night. One unique offering in New York that residents of One Manhattan Square won’t want to miss is the exhibit’s on-site yoga classes, 25-minute sessions where participants move through a guided routine choreographed to sync up with the music and displays of Van Gogh paintings. Take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime yoga environment while enjoying snacks provided by Lifeway Kefir.
