This publication celebrates a new institution for art in a historical location. “Van Gogh Live!”, the exhibition to inaugurate the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles, is curated by the institution's artistic director, Bice Curiger. The spirit and legacy of this exceptional and profoundly influential artist is honoured and explored in an extraordinary building that unites Van Gogh's original paintings with contemporary art. Taking place in Arles, where van Gogh created his most important works, the event attests to the dynamic, innovative cultural life emerging in this city in concert with other pioneering projects.
Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles, from Avril to August 2014.
