Rather than presenting Vincent’s original artworks, ‘Meet Vincent’ is a highly immersive, comprehensive and emotional look into van Gogh’s creative process. It also reflects on the personal challenges Vincent encountered during his short life – mental illness, the nature of friendship and creativity and the search for identity.
This exhibition is a both a narrative and celebration of Vincent van Gogh, showcasing the artist’s highs and lows and helping visitors meet the man behind the myth.
“You’ll receive a free headset to wear throughout this self-guided exhibition. Narrated by the artist himself (thanks to the hundreds of letters he wrote to his brother Theo), the story takes you through the six most important stages of Van Gogh’s life, serving as a wonderful insight into his thoughts.”
The exhibition is running until 21 May 2020 and is located at Upper Ground, London South Bank.
