With the Van Gogh artist-in-residence program, the Van Gogh House in Zundert wants to follow Vincent’s dream of “the studio of the South”.
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.
Participants to the program receive an artist’s fee and support in publishing their work. In exchange, they’re asked to donate one of their works of art to the collection of the Vincent Van GoghHouse and one piece that will be auctioned for the benefit of the artist in residence project.”
Artists from all corners of the globe, both young talents and established names, are invited to come and work in Zundert for a while. To follow in Van Gogh’s footsteps and be inspired by his work, his ideas and the place where he grew up. A period of research, experimentation and seclusion in the immediate vicinity of his birthplace is special and very motivating.
