Move over Van Gogh, Kahlo is coming to town. 

The city has seen several immersive art exhibits pop-up over recent years, including the one that seemed to start the trend about artist Vincent Van Gogh.

Now, Vancouver art lovers can dive into the life and work of world-famous artist Frida Kahlo.

Starting May 3, locals can visit Frida Kahlo: The Immersive Biography at the PNE Agrodome and explore the in-depth story of the Mexican artist. The exhibit includes seven transformational spaces and an optional VR experience.

However, this exhibit is different from the previous pop-ups which consisted of larger-than-life reproductions of famous paintings emblazoned on walls. 

"It utilizes a range of innovative techniques, including historical photographs, original films, digital environments, artistic installations, collector's items, and newly created music, to create an immersive experience that captures the essence of Kahlo's life and art," describes a news release. 

Tickets for Friday Kahlo: The Immersive Biography are available online, with prices ranging from $42 to $52, not including VR options and family packages.
