The high-tech spectacle, founded by two Irish brothers Dan and John Gleeson, is family-friendly and designed for people of all ages and interests, running May 16th to August 4th.

As part of the experience visitors will also be given the chance to view three award-winning existing contemporary pieces of digital artwork, some of which have featured in the iconic Atelier Des Lumieres in Paris.

Speaking about the immersive experience, Project Director Jillian Wilson said: “You get to walk through the fascinating and tragic life of Van Gogh, through his carefully curated artworks, chosen to fully absorb you in a multisensory experience, with mind-blowing audio-visual effects.”

While founder Dan Gleeson, who has brought the Van Gogh digital exhibition all over the world, added: “When you first arrive you don’t know what to expect.

"Immediately you’re completely taken aback by how beautiful everything is and how impressive the digital artwork is, brought to life all around you. You then become completely absorbed by the journey, Van Gogh’s incredible talent and his fascinating life.

“And it’s really not just for art lovers, people of any age and any interests will enjoy this spectacle. It really is an incredible new experience we can all now enjoy in Dublin across the coming summer months.”
