Ruud van Empel – Inventing Van Gogh

14 August – 5 December 2021

Ruud van Empel has been working on a special project for the Vincent van Gogh House in Zundert (NL). For this project, he made a total of nine photographic portraits of Vincent van Gogh, photographing different look-alikes and mixing them together in his special technique. Van Empel also reproduced a number of paintings by Van Gogh in photography. The exhibition, originally scheduled for August 2020, will now hopefully take place in August 2021. The exhibition is curated by Ron Dirven. For the texts in the accompanying catalog Inventing Van Gogh, Dirven collaborated with Hans November of the Noordbrabants Museum.
