It's time to celebrate the birthday of one of the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art.

On Monday March 30th Exhibition on Screen will broadcast Vincent van Gogh: A New Way of Seeing, live, for free, on Facebook. The broadcast will feature a specially filmed introduction by Executive Producer Phil Grabsky, who will also be available throughout the film to answer viewer questions in real time.

Experience the wonder of seeing van Gogh's masterpieces close-up while specially invited guests, including world-renowned curators and art historians, offer their interpretations and explanations of his work. With exclusive new research revealing recent discoveries, the Van Gogh Museum has helped craft a visual experience like no other.

Exhibition on Screen Executive Producer Phil Grabsky says, "Over the previous weeks, we have seen an incredible response from creatives and institutions around the world, working hard to make art accessible to so many of us who are unable to leave our homes." 

He adds, "These are extraordinary times, but one thing that brings me great comfort is the mobilisation of communities - local and global - to tackle the many unexpected challenges we are facing. I strongly believe that the arts play a vital role in our creating that community.”
