Vincent Van Gogh arrives on Airbnb, to rent out his beloved bedroom. No, this is not some weird film of dubious taste on arrival, and even a curious case of homonymy, but a brilliant initiative of theArt Institute of Chicago: to promote the exhibition “Van Gogh's Bedrooms”, Regenstein Hall from February 14 to may 10, has been re-created since in detail the room painted several times by the Dutch artist during his stay in Arles, France between 1888 and 1889.
Simple bed, furniture pine wood, the walls a light blue, on: the magic of the art of Van Gogh turns into shelter for one night, at a price more than modest. “I ask for $ 10 only and exclusively to buy the colors, " explains the host in its elusive message of the presentation, and concluded -. In any case I'll be happy to arrange tickets for my show at the Art Institute of Chicago”. It's a done deal.
