With only one week left of, ‘Van Gogh Dublin – An Immersive Art Journey’ in the RDS, reveal which Irish localities are the most interested in modern art experiences, based off data from the 75,000 attendees to date.

Since opening on May 16th in the RDS, to ‘Van Gogh Dublin – An Immersive Art Journey’, Ireland’s first immersive art experience, has left Irish audiences amazed over the all-digital, hands-free, immersive exhibition. The 20,000 square-foot light and sound spectacular has since welcomed 75,000 visitors to date, and current sales estimates predict a total of 100,000 guests will have visited by the final showing on August 4th.

The event was conceived by Irish company Theatre of Light, who recruited renowned international creative studio, Nohlab, to bring their immersive visions to life. Nohlab created a unique journey whereby visitors experience audio-visual storytelling at its best, while being completely submerged in Van Gogh’s history and artwork in an advanced digital format.

From the 75,000 attendees that have visited Van Gogh RDS to date, we know from sales data that within Dublin, we now know our most culturally interested suburbs are:

  1. Tallaght
  1. Blackrock
  2. Swords

Theatre of Light Co-Founder, Daniel Gleeson said of the event: “The launch of Van Gogh Dublin was two years in the planning and orchestrating Ireland’s largest ever Immersive art exhibition during covid, presented many challenges. The team who supported Theatre of Light in bringing a show of this scale to Dublin did an exceptional job.

“The customer feedback for the exhibition has been overwhelmingly positive. We’ve been lucky to have received lots of observations on what elements of the attraction visitors liked or disliked over the three months. This was always an important priority of ours. Since opening, as soon as visitors leave the exhibition hall, they have spotted and engaged with our feedback wall. We have big plans for the future, so incorporating this feedback into the design and planning of future exhibitions has always been a top priority for us.” 

If you have yet to attend ‘Van Gogh – An Immersive Journey’ in the RDS, you only have until Thursday, August 4th to do so.
