Matthew Wong | Vincent van Gogh: Painting as a Last Resort

Dates: March 1 to September 1

What it’s about: You can see Van Gogh's influence in the intense colors, bold brushstrokes, and the personal themes Wong explored in his paintings. This exhibition dives deep into the artistic bond between these two artists. Both Van Gogh and Wong had a long, winding road before finding their true calling. They also both battled mental health issues, which sadly led to their early deaths. Both created deeply personal and emotionally charged works in their own styles. Matthew Wong | Vincent van Gogh: Painting as a Last Resort is the first major European showcase of Wong's work.

Collection highlights: Path to the Sea, Unknown Pleasures, A Walk Through Primordial Garden, Valley, Night Crossing, Somewhere, The Journey Home, The Night Watcher, Footprints in the Wind, Time After Time, Dark Reverie, and A Dream.

Landscapes of Sentiment

Dates: February 7 to June 23

What it’s about: This exhibition takes you on a journey through some truly unique landscapes – not paintings, but prints! Back in the late 1800s, artists like Emile Bernard and Odilon Redon were ditching the traditional and using prints to express their deepest emotions. Artists were experimenting with all sorts of techniques – lithographs, etchings, and woodcuts. This allowed them to add even more layers of depth and symbolism to their landscapes. Turns out, Vincent van Gogh was a major influence on these artists. Check out prints by Emile Bernard, Maxime Maufra, Félix Vallotton, Paul Signac, Charles Guilloux, Odilon Redon and Ker-Xavier Roussel.

Collection highlights: The Road to Gaud (La route de Gaud), Mont Rose (Le Mont-Rose, Plate 2 (Planche 2), Suite de paysages, and Landscape with Pine Trees.
