Tandem Expositions, in collaboration with Encore Productions from France, has announced that it will bring production to Edmonton in April.

The exhibition was originally scheduled to open on March 27 and run through May 2, but organizers said, given the provincial government’s announcement that Alberta would not move on to step 3 of the economic reopening plan, the exhibition is now set to open on Thursday, April fifteen .

The organizers said that all tickets purchased between March 27th and April 14th will be considered. Customers will be contacted directly by the ticket provider Showpass to reschedule their tickets.

The exhibition, designed by the French directors Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron, brings van Gogh’s canvases to life in a “vivid and spectacular way: the audience will literally be immersed in the artist’s dream world”.

The organizers noted that the exhibition contains bright lights that can cause discomfort in people with photosensitive epilepsy.

“It’s an immersive exhibit, which means you won’t have a real screen – it’s a video projection exhibit,” Mauger told Global News. “You will have video projections everywhere: on the wall, on the floor, everywhere, everywhere around you.”

“We show how van Gogh painted southern France and the suburbs near Paris. It is the projection of all the fantastic paintings that have been created in the last two years of his life. “

According to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Vincent van Gogh became an artist just 10 years before his death and his time in the south of France was a tumultuous period in his life. He struggled with a mental illness and cut off his ear, but kept working and producing some of his most famous works of art.
