On Fiday I was in Mons (Culture Capital for 2015) attending a meeting with our partners of Van Gogh Europe (site in maintenance, should reopen any days from now).
I had the chance to visit the great exhibition "Van Gogh in the Borinage", with nearly 90 works from Vincent (drawing, painting, etc) and including some of the Saint Remy ones....
The exhibition is split by theme around Van Gogh's work (people, reproduction, men at work, etc) and I found it most interesting.
Exhibition last until May 17th.
For more details
And on Saturday morning I was back to my Saint Remy attending the opening of the exhibition "In the foot steps of Van Gogh".
Much smaller but so nice and revigorating.
Organised by our local art "association" La cour des Arts with the University of Arts of Avignon, the project involved 7 students.
The timing was split in 4 weeks. One weeks of hike in the steps of Van Gogh from Avignon to Arles, les Saintes-Marie-de-la-Mer and Saint Remy taking photos, making skectches, meeting people, experiencing the scenery and the landscape. The second week with a writer to compose text with a professional writer. And then they compiled a nice exhibition mixing skectches, video, drawing,etc...
Exhibition is on until April 7th.
