Studio of the South

In 1888 in Arles, Van Gogh dreamt of sharing his roof with other painters to create a living studio. Between 2020 and 2023, the American artist Laura Owens will organise and run the L'Atelier du Sud residency in a house on the rue du Cloître.

Today, the Vincent van Gogh Foundation in Arles is inviting the 24 participants to come together to reflect on this stage of their artistic journey. Van Gogh's paintings Field of wheat with poppies and Green ears of corn (Arles, 1888) and several facsimiles of his correspondence accompany the approach of the participants in L'Atelier du Sud.

With : Laura Owens, Candida Alvarez, Alvaro Barrington, Julie Beaufils, Julien Ceccaldi, Jacob Eisenmann, Gabriele Garavaglia, Charlotte Houette, Gary Indiana, Parker Ito, François Lancien-Guilberteau, Sadie Laska, Miriam Laura Leonardi, Eric Palgon, Blake Rayne, Adee Roberson, Andy Robert, Clément Rodzielski, Asha Schechter, Alake Shilling, Naoki Sutter-Shudo, Alicia Vaïsse, Mona Varichon, Alexander Zevin & Vincent van Gogh
