In the first season of Netflix’s “Emily in Paris“, Lily Collins’ Emily Cooper visits an immersive Van Gogh exhibit with her new French friends Camille (played by Camille Razat) and Gabriel (Lucas Bravo). It’s here that Emily and Gabriel talk about a kiss that occurred that probably shouldn’t have while Van Gogh’s post-impressionist works dance over them.

The one in the Netflix show is called “Immersive Van Gogh” and features large digital projections of some of the master artist’s most famous works, including Mangeurs de Pommes de Terre (The Potato Eaters, 1885), Nuit étoilée (Starry Night, 1889), Les
Tournesols (Sunflowers, 1888), and La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom, 1889).
The works are accompanied by music for a fully immersive experience.

You can catch “Immersive Van Gogh” in Toronto starting March 9, San Francisco starting March 18, Los Angeles starting May 27, New York starting June 10, and Chicago (currently open).

“Van Gogh Alive” is another multi-sensory exhibit that has been shown in over 50 countries and is now coming to the US. The exhibition uses digital projection to show over 3,000 Van Gogh images on flat screens, walls, columns, floors, and ceilings. 

“Van Gogh Alive” is already on display at the Salvador Dali Museum in Florida and will be headed to Indianapolis’s The Lume.

Each location will ask patrons to follow strict COVID-19 guidelines including masking, social distancing, and having their temperatures checked before entrance. Dates are subject to change depending on the pandemic.
