Asya Akhundov

"The Immersive Van Gogh" multimedia exhibit recently made its West Coast premiere in San Francisco. Svetlana Dvoretsky, a co-producer of the exhibit, tells us what to expect. She also shares what led her to the business side of the art world.

Svetlana Dvoretsky is the founder of Show One Productions in Toronto.

"The Immersive Van Gogh" is at SVN San Francisco in the former Fillmore West building. The exhibit showcases Vincent Van Gogh’s work through 300,000 square foot projections. The giant images are animated and vibrant in color. They pull visitors into the emotional energy the artist put into his paintings. More than 2 million people in North America and Europe have experience the show.
