The Living House will be an exhibition and series of events exploring the idea that the house is still alive and inhabited. Artists Do Ho Suh, Olivia Plender, Eva Gold and Godai Sahara were invited to respond to the title theme and situate their work amongst the objects and rooms within the house’s collection, from newspapers and children's toys to the bathroom, garden, or beds. Seeing the house as an active collaborator, the works will be in conversation with the building to draw out questions around how art and ways of living are entwined.

Visitors who would like a more in-depth introduction will be able to take a guided tour of the house, which situates Van Gogh’s time in London, examining the city’s politics, material culture and fabric through the House.
