Hockney - Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature
Now on - May 26, 2019 (ends today)

One look at the vivid colors, bucolic scenery, and oblong shapes of British artist David Hockney's paintings, and it's easy to see which Dutch master his work is inspired by.

Hockney - Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature presents Vincent Van Gogh's masterpieces alongside Hockney's most iconic works, and draws the eye towards their shared appreciation for the little details that help turn dried paint into living scenes that spring from the canvas. Hockney's imposing Yorkshire landscapes are a central part of the exhibition, with his stunning The Arrival of Spring in Woldgate as a highlight.

Van Gogh Dreams
Jun 21, 2019 - Sep 1, 2019

It's no surprise that Van Gogh saw and felt the natural world differently than us. Van Gogh Dreams blends storytelling with aesthetics, technology, and craft to make the inner workings of the artist's mind tangible to us.

Experience the tumultuous labyrinth of Van Gogh's emotional journey as he moved from Paris to Arles, in the South of France – a place that supplied him with infinite inspiration and beauty, but was the backdrop for his descend into desolation.

The exhibition is a walkthrough of Van Gogh's mind based on the letters that he wrote to his brother and lifelong supporter, Theo. The letters shed light on Van Gogh's confrontation with the disillusionment with life, while being surrounded by the boundless beauty of southern France. Van Gogh Dreams immerses visitors in a disorienting space with broken mirrors, poignant light shows, and a field of 900 glass sunflowers.

Van Gogh and the Sunflowers
Jun 21, 2019 - Sep 1, 2019

In a letter to his sister dated 21 August 1888, Van Gogh wrote about the arrival of his friend, Paul Gauguin, in his yellow house in Arles, and how he intended to decorate his whole studio with nothing but sunflowers. And although Van Gogh dedicated his paintings of vases overflowing with sunflowers to his dear friend, he later on assumed the symbol for himself, saying, "the sunflower is mine".

This exhibition explores Vincent Van Gogh's synergetic relationship with sunflowers, following the artist's 12 versions of the subject from his time in Paris to his days in the listless town of Arles. Find out what this flower meant to him, why the painting is not allowed to travel, and what Van Gogh hoped to achieve by painting it over and over again.
