To consider Van Gogh in dialogue with contemporary art.
To take a fresh look at the past, by liberating the artists and artworks that have been tamed, classified and placed in labelled boxes.
To extend our artistic references to visual popular culture, thus opening up unexpected perspectives.

Drawing from contemporary art, avant-garde artists who have made their mark on art history and even the popular arts, the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles presents exhibitions that, like cinematographic montages, bring together what is normally kept apart. The premise of this hybrid space is not artistic purity; to the contrary, it strives to produce something “impure”, to bring about a clash or an unexpected complicity.

VAN GOGH MANIFESTO looks back over the curatorial work of Bice Curiger, led by one desire: to sharpen our gaze on art and the world, enlivening it with renewed vitality.

Celebrating the fifth anniversary of the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles, VAN GOGH MANIFESTO invites you to discover a unique artistic site through exhibition photographs, chronologies and original texts. Jean de Loisy, Suzanne von Falkenhausen and Bice Curiger describe their relationship with the Fondation and outline the artistic and philosophical paths taken since 2014.
