Van Gogh Exhibit: The Immersive Experience

Until 27th February January 2023, Shoreditch

Chances are, you've heard of London's Van Gogh Exhibit: The Immersive Experience tucked away in Shoreditch. Perhaps one of the most famous (and tragic) artists, the Dutchman can be appreciated through two-storey projections of his greatest pieces. But this isn't just a visual and VR masterpiece, as there's ethereal soundscapes to accompany your journey through the space too.
