Immersive 'Imagine Picasso' Vancouver exhibit will drop you into over 200 works of art (PHOTOS)

The event arrives in Vancouver this October.

Another of the immersive 'Imagine' exhibits is coming to Vancouver.

Imagine Picasso, which promises a "one-of-a-kind immersive exhibition highlighting and celebrating the work of Pablo Picasso" will open at the Vancouver Convention Centre on Oct. 27, 2021.

"Imagine Picasso features more than 200 of the artist’s paintings, shown together for the first time—from his Blue and Rose periods on through Cubism and the prolific later years," states a press release.

The exhibition will be similar to Imagine Van Gogh, which is currently running in the same space. However, instead of just being projected on the walls like Van Gogh, the new exhibit will include elements of 3D.

"The paintings, projected onto nine full-blown Origami-style structures, offer a unique and novel perspective on the work of Picasso," reads the release.

The exhibition was designed along with Rudy Ricciotti, one of France's most celebrated active architects. It's also been produced with the approval of the Picasso estate.

Imagine Picasso will have a limited stay in Vancouver and is expected to sell out quickly. Tickets start at $39.99 (including service charges and fees) and go on sale online on Saturday, Sept. 11 at 10 a.m. local time.

Imagine Van Gogh has had its stay in Vancouver extended until Oct. 15.
