Back in the art game.
With Bangkok's galleries now back open for business, you can finally get some artistic inspiration in your life, starting with "Van Gogh Life and Art."
Taking place at River City Bangkok's Museum of Digital Art next month, the multimedia digital exhibition delves into the life and work of the one of the most influential figures in art history, Vincent Van Gogh. It has previously showcased in eight other cities worldwide, including Berlin, Moscow and St. Petersburg.
From Jun 4-Dec 31, you can immerse yourself in the life of the Dutch post-impressionist, from his early novice charcoal sketches to his last famous oil masterpiece, "Wheatfield with Crows" (1890), along with other recognizable pieces like "The Starry Night" (1889) and "Cafe Terrace at Night" (1888). Alongside Van Gogh's artwork, the exhibit draws viewers into his personal life through quotes, letter correspondences between the artist and his loved ones and physical recreations of works like "Bedroom in Arles" (1888). Visitors will be surrounded by huge screens allowing them to appreciate Van Gogh's masterpieces up close, with a soundtrack of some of the great music compositions of our time.
Early-bird tickets are priced at B300 (through Jun 3) via Zipevent. Those who purchased a ticket for the gallery's "Something Nouveau" exhibit but were unable to visit due to the recent closures can exchange their ticket for this event.
