New Delhi, Feb 2 (IANSlife) From April 14 to 28, Delhi will host Van Gogh 360°, an immersive, multi-media event that brought the vibrant colours of Vincent van Gogh’s most famous works to life in Mumbai during a sold-out run.
The exhibit will also make stops in Bangalore, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Jaipur, Kochi, Chandigarh, Bhopal, Lucknow, Nagpur, Pune, Indore, Goa and Surat later in the year.

Van Gogh 360° Delhi, where art and technology collide
Using cutting-edge projection technology crafted by world-renowned audio-visual designers, Van Gogh 360° Delhi – presented by DLF and Absolut – will create an engaging journey into the world of the legendary post-Impressionist painter.
