Van Gogh artist-in-residence
The Vincent van Gogh Huis is an arts centre built on the native soil of one of the most famous artists in history. It’s not a traditional museum but an active world of experiences, for art lovers as well as tourists. It offers an agitating presentation about the life and works of Vincent van Gogh and interactive education.The permanent exhibition ‘Vincent van Gogh – The roots of a master’ tells the story of Vincent's youth in Zundert. The temporary exhibitions are all about artists of the 20th and 21st century who are inspired by the work and life of Vincent van Gogh.
Guest studio on Van Gogh's native soil.
There are two guest studios:
- The Sexton’s House, next to the Van Gogh church. Artists stay at the Sexton’s House for a month, while working in the studio next door. After their residency, they showcase the results of their time here in the Van Gogh Gallery. Located near the Van GoghHouse, in the centre of Zundert, under high trees and overlooking a lush vegetable patch, the spirit of Van Gogh is truly tangible.
- Flemish Shed at estate De Moeren. Artists live and work in the monumental Flemish Shed, near the country house and the Trappist abbey, for two months. The shed is surrounded by nature, woods and heath, accurately described by Vincent in his letters and something that inspired him enormously as a painter. This estate is also part of the future Van Gogh National Park. The residency ends with an Open Studio weekend.
