Fancy an art experience that extends beyond looking at works on a wall? Then prepare to be impressed by Melbourne's new 3000-square-metre, 11-metre-high immersive digital art gallery.

THE LUME Melbourne has opened the doors to its new permanent home at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), where some of the world's most celebrated artworks will be projected in large-scale format.

Until October 9, THE LUME Melbourne's inaugural experience will be celebrating the work and life of Vincent van Gogh, allowing you to literally walk through his renowned masterpieces. The swirling hues of The Starry Night will be illuminated around you, and a mirrored infinity room filled with bold yellow blooms will have you immersed in Sunflowers. You can expect a reimagined Café Terrace at Night and a life-size recreation of Van Gogh's The Bedroom, too.

A carefully curated fusion of colour, sound, taste and aroma will see you experience the works of the famed Dutch artist like never before. The exhibition is closing soon, so nab your tickets, stat!

Van Gogh at THE LUME Melbourne is on until Sunday, October 9. Head to the website to secure your tickets.
