In April 2014 the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles will move into its permanent home at the Hôtel Léautaud de Donines, currently under restoration by the FLUOR architectural agency. The Fondation's new premises will comprise over 1000 square metres of exhibition space spread over two floors.

The main gallery on the ground floor will welcome the first in a series of exhibitions on the work of Van Gogh being curated by Sjraar van Heugten. In the adjacent areas, Bice Curiger will present brand new installations by contemporary artists in homage to the Dutch artist - 'Van Gogh live!', featuring gallery artist Thomas Hirschhorn alongside William Bruere, Raphael Hefti, Gary Hume, Bethan Huws, Bertrand Lavier, Camille Henrot, Fritz Hauser and Elizabeth Peyton.

The permanent installations specially commissioned for the entrance area will also be officially unveiled.

The exhibition runs from 7 April to 31 August 2014.
