Lambert Collection, Avignon

An exceptional museum combining traditional and contemporary elements. The Lambert Collection in Avignon is a unique contemporary art museum, born from the initiative of an art dealer and collector, Yvon Lambert, who donated an exceptional set of major works to the State by the second half of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century. Housed in two magnificent 18th century mansions in the heart of Avignon, the Lambert Collection hosts ambitious exhibitions and a varied cultural and educational program, with the support of the State, the City of Avignon, the region as well as private patrons.

Founded on the historic donation of dealer and collector Yvon Lambert, the Collection Lambert, museum of contemporary art, reopened its doors to the public in July 2015 after having doubled its exhibition space. The hotels of Caumont and Montfaucon now host a selection of works from the permanent collection (Sol LeWitt, Douglas Gordon, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Anselm Kiefer, Niele Toroni, Andres Serrano... whose works are presented alternately) and exhibitions temporary artists from the current art scene.
