From 21 April 2018 to 28 October 2018
Devoted to Van Gogh, his explosively productive stay in Arles and his inspiring influence on contemporary work, the Vincent van Gogh Foundation Arles will pursue three main objectives: to stimulate creation, to facilitate access to knowledge and to share its passion for Vincent van Gogh and contemporary art with the residents of Arles as well as visitors from all round the world. Original works of Van Gogh are presented as well as those of contemporary artists paying tribute to the Dutch master, through temporary exhibitions renewed once or twice a year.
See you on the 21th of April for "Hot Sun, Late Sun. Untamed Modernism", a exhibition to be discovered until 21 April 2018.
The Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles aims to showcase and promote van Gogh’s artistic heritage while also asking questions about the resonance of his oeuvre in art today. By presenting the painting of van Gogh in the context of works by contemporary artists, it seeks to stimulate a fruitful dialogue centred on interrogation and reflection.
The Fondation serves as a dynamic forum for exchanges and events underscoring the inseparable link between the work of van Gogh and the town of Arles, and as a space conducive to discussion and debate on art and painting today.
In 2014 the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles moved into its permanent home at the Hôtel Léautaud de Donines, currently under restoration by the FLUOR architectural agency. The Fondation’s new premises comprise over 1000 square metres of exhibition space spread over two floors. The main gallery on the ground floor welcomes the first in a series of exhibitions on the work of Van Gogh being curated by Sjraar van Heugten. In the adjacent areas, Bice Curiger presents brand new installations by contemporary artists in homage to the Dutch artist.
Inaugurated in April 2014, the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles pays homage to the work of Van Gogh—the artist whose flourishing creativity reached its peak during his stay in the city, between 1888 and 1889—while at the same time exploring his impact upon art today. Within the context of temporary exhibitions, original paintings and drawings by the Dutch master appear alongside works of contemporary art, fuelling rich and fruitful dialogues
