Living at Hackford Road in London brought happiness to Van Gogh, although this turned to sadness when his feelings for his landlady’s daughter were not reciprocated. Opening in March 2019, the house offers residencies and exhibition opportunities to young artists, through collaboration with the nearby San Mei Gallery. The gallery is the ‘face’ of a wider, ongoing venture working with art and education in the UK and China. San Mei Gallery seeks to facilitate developing artistic practice, through providing space for studios, exhibitions and workshops, and encouraging different communities to work together. The gallery is open to proposals and ideas. Gallery and house visits by prior appointment.
