An immersive Vincent Van Gogh experience is set to open to art lovers after outselling London and Manchester.

Van Gogh Alive, a “multi-sensory” installation, includes re-imaginings of the Dutch artist’s most famous works and has toured across the world.

Now, the exhibition is set to be the centrepiece of the newly refurbished Grade II listed Corn Exchange on its first trip to Brighton.

“We’ve been thrilled by Van Gogh Alive’s reception from the local community so far,” said Bruce Peterson, founder of Grande Experiences, the company behind Van Gogh Alive.

He added: “Collaborating with Brighton Dome as it reopens the Corn Exchange & Studio Theatre venues has been a real privilege. It’s a joy to be a small part of Brighton Dome’s rich cultural history.


“Following the short delay in opening due to the necessary certification of building systems, we can’t wait for people to enjoy this incredible experience and to immerse themselves in Van Gogh’s artwork!”

The art installation was initially delayed due to the need to install “critical safety systems” for the exhibition at Brighton Dome.

The installation was supposed to be launched last week but will now open to the public today.

Van Gogh Alive runs until September.
