Leisure & Events 



Inaugurated in April 2014, the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles pays homage to the work of Van Gogh—the artist whose flourishing creativity reached its peak during his stay in the city, between 1888 and 1889—while at the same time exploring his impact upon art today. Within the context of temporary exhibitions, original paintings and drawings by the Dutch master appear alongside works of contemporary art, fuelling rich and fruitful dialogues.

Departure for the 49th Rencontres d'Arles is imminent. This year, you are invited to cross space and time with a breathtaking, celestial journey across the ages. Photography is often the best-placed medium for registering all the shocks that remind us the world is changing, sometimes right before our eyes. An arts program is an excellent time machine-a constellation of exhibitions, intersecting, interacting and occasionally colliding. With the artist's eye as our aid, and the recent past as our measuring stick, we can discover the near future, and shed some light on the big questions of society today.
