Artist Wei Zhen, drawing at the Van Gogh House

Every spring and summer we host residencies, providing artists the opportunity to develop a project at our unique heritage site.

Residencies at

Van Gogh House

Our residents, many of them artist-duos and collaborators, live and work in the house for one month at a time.

Every residency explores themes relevant to the house or our wider network, from materials and memory to coming-of-age, migration and mental health. Most residencies culminate in a public event and a community workshop. Some of our residents also create small temporary interventions, known as ‘traces’, for the house, which the public can view during our guided house tours at the end of each month.

We often work with international funders, offering artists from around the world the opportunity to spend a life-changing month in London. Most artists come to us through a nomination process.

Our residencies would not be possible without the generous support and sponsorship of our funders listed alongside each photograph below.

Yingmei Duan digital residency


Yingmei Duan is participating in a 100 day online artist residency at Van Gogh House. Over the next 100 days, Duan will document her residency on this page through weekly updates.





Jasmin Bhanji Exchanging Spaces residency


Exchanging Spaces is a residency that creates space for one artist with a pedagogic or socially engaged practice to inhabit Van Gogh House and its studio whilst working collaboratively with children from three local primary schools. Artist and primary school classes invite each other into their spaces and comfortable terrain, creatively engaging with these environments and co-producing works of art to be shown at Van Gogh House on the final weekend of the project.
