Art Fund Film event: Vincent Van Gogh – A New Way of Seeing

5:45pm to 8:00pm, ER 140, Elvet Riverside 2, New Elvet, Durham, DH1 3JT

The showing has been arranged in collaboration with staff at Durham University's Centre for Visual Arts and Culture. It will be introduced by Dr Anthony Parton, a distinguished art historian from the university, with time afterwards for discussion.

The "Exhibition on Screen‟ documentaries from Seventh Art Productions form an innovative series of high quality films about the work of individual artists based on major art exhibitions and collections. Each film is shown only once at selected venues around the country. This provides a further chance to see Vincent Van Gogh - a New Way of Seeing, orginally released in 2015, the 125th anniversary of the artist‟s death. For this documentary, Seventh Art enjoyed unprecedented access to the treasures of Amsterdam's Van Gogh Musuem. The film provides viewers with the inspiring experience of seeing Vincent‟s iconic masterpieces close-up on screen and also discusses recent research that questions some of the myths about his troubled life.
