Breathing one’s breath

The thematic exhibition “Breathing one’s breath” brings together some twenty artists belonging to distinct artistic movements and generations. Taking its title from the words Vincent van Gogh addressed to Emile Bernard, “[…] the fact is that we are painters in real life, and it’s a matter of breathing one’s breath as long as one has breath,”1 the exhibition takes a transhistoric route as it covers all the spaces within the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles.

Artists : Marina Abramovic & Ulay, Vito Acconci, Jean-Marie Appriou, Carlotta Bailly-Borg, Frank Bowling, Tracey Emin, Markus Döbeli, Hans Haacke, Francis Hallé, Hans Hartung, Hokusai, Rebecca Horn, Asger Jorn, Jutta Koether, Piero Manzoni, Kristin Oppenheim, Giuseppe Penone, Joyce Pensato, Vivian Springford, Vivian Suter, Andra Ursuta, Chloé Vanderstraeten, Vincent Van Gogh, Gil Joseph Wolman et Wols.

Exhibition curators : Bice Curiger, Julia Marchand et Margaux Bonopera
