Van Gogh and the Seasons (Auslan tours)

The National Gallery of Victoria, in partnership with Art Exhibitions Australia, presents Van Gogh and the Seasons for the 2017 Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition.

UPDATE: The tour on Sunday 11 June will be presented as an illustrated introductory talk in Auslan by artist Phoenix Cheung. Following the talk, guests are invited to the exhibition for a self-guided viewing. Phoenix will be available in the exhibition to continue the conversation for those interested.

Please meet at the main information desk, NGV International prior to 1pm. NGV Staff will escort guests to the Education theatre. The theatre is fully accessible.

Curated by Sjraar van Heugten, independent art historian and former Head of Collections at the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, Van Gogh and the Seasons is exclusive to Melbourne and presents the largest collection of Van Gogh artworks to ever travel to Australia.

Van Gogh and the Seasons is presented within sections devoted to each of the four seasons. Viewers are invited to explore Van Gogh’s profound connection to nature through nearly 50 paintings and drawings, many of which depict places that were the setting for defining moments in the artist’s tumultuous life. Drawing extensively from Van Gogh’s personal letters and research into his interest in literature and nature, Van Gogh and the Seasons provides insight into the influences and themes that dominate much of this visionary artist’s work.

Find out more about the exhibition on the NGV website.
