Lambert Collection

Museum of contemporary art displaying the works donated to the French government by the famous art dealer Yvon Lambert. The Collection Lambert now displays permanent and temporary exhibitions. The Collection Lambert in Avignon was founded in 2000 by Yvon Lambert, seeking to open his personal collection of contemporary art to the public, within the walls of the city mansion known as the Hôtel de Caumont. This collection of contemporary art reflects the major movements in the art of our times: Minimal art, Conceptual art, Land art, painting from the 1980's, video and photography from the 1990's. The collection holds works from great artists such as: Cy Twombly, Sol LeWitt, Donald Judd, Niele Toroni,Jean-Michel Basquiat, Anselm Kiefer, Christian Boltanski, Nan Goldin,Douglas Gordon and Jenny Holzer whose work can be seen throughout the year, alternating or in temporary exhibitions. Since the month of July 2015, the new museum, with twice the display area, is open. The two mansions, built side by side - the Caumont House and the Montfaucon House, now display a permanent exhibition of the collections. There is a program of guided tours on themes relating to the temporary exhibits and the architectureof the place. There are conferences and workshops for children.

Lambert Collection - Avignon

NEW EXHIBITION FROM JUNE 30TH TO MARCH 2020- UN ART DE NOTRE TEMPS #2

From date 11 June 2019 to date 31 March 2020

A partir du 30 juin 2019, le musée poursuit la série de présentations des œuvres de la Collection Lambert, intitulée Un art de notre temps #2, et explore dans un large panorama sensible la singularité de ce fonds unique, constitué à travers le regard d’une personnalité centrale de l’art de la deuxième moitié du XXème siècle et du début du XXIème siècle.

L’exposition montre comment les ruptures initiées dans les années 1960-1970 et les nouvelles manières de penser l’art qu’elles ont instaurées, ont nourri les pratiques artistiques de ces 60 dernières années ainsi que la vision d’Yvon Lambert, toujours tournée vers l’avenir, à l’écart des académismes mortifères. Elle montre comment les grandes œuvres constituent à la fois des ruptures avec l’art du passé, ouvrant de nouvelles possibilités pour l’art, en même temps qu’elles invitent à de nouvelles lectures de l’histoire avec laquelle elles tissent des liens nouveaux et conscients, pour reprendre la pensée de Jean Frémon.
