Vincent van Gogh Versus Armin van Buuren Mashup

Two of the most famous Dutch artists in history are getting together for a special exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

Vincent van Gogh was born in 1853 and painted post-impressionist art. Armin van Buuren was born in 1979 and produces electronic dance music. Now the two Dutchmen are involved in the same museum, although van Gogh has long since died. The Van Gogh Museum recently debuted a partnership with ALDA in which van Buuren provides a limited edition audio tour of the facilities. The DJ is also dropping an album to celebrate.


The special exhibition takes place from October 22 to December 1, 2016. Van Buuren has selected 11 of his favorite van Gogh paintings and provided a personal commentary, along with music from his Embrace LP of 2015. The Embrace Vincent audio guide will be available in Dutch and English, in addition to the normal multimedia guide that is obtainable in 11 languages. There will be a separate album titled Club Embrace that includes the music heard in the tour guide.

ALDA is the Dutch promoter responsible for the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE). It was they who initiated this project. ADE happens this year from October 19 to 23, during which van Buuren will perform a show at the museum on Friday, October 21.

Van Buuren remarks, “After meeting (Vincent) Willem van Gogh and getting to know more about the museum, I was blown away. The paintings come to life, it’s hard to get them out of your head. And I instinctively linked the paintings to music. Van Gogh is inspirational, and he certainly inspired me.”

According to Axel Rüger, Director of the Van Gogh Museum:

“This collaboration sees us bring music, art and the museum together. Each form of expression influences the other; culture works as a unifying force. The Embrace Vincent project allows us to highlight how Vincent’s legacy remains relevant. And more importantly, that this legacy is being passed down to future generations. This takes numerous different forms, as is aptly illustrated by this collaboration between the museum and Armin van Buuren. This fantastic idea has its roots at ALDA, who put us in touch with Armin.”

Club Embrace releases on October 28, 2016 as a two-hour-long continuous mix. Armada Music has revealed one track on Spotify called “In and Out of Love” (Diversion Remix) by Armin van Buuren featuring Sharon den Adel. The producer’s official website states that it is his most popular single to date with over 170 million views on YouTube.
