Francesco Vezzoli: works that look at us AVIGNON

2 March to 2 June, Tuesday to Sunday 11am to 6pm. This exhibition has been designed as a unique project in which Francesco Vezzoli constructs a dialogue between his own work and the iconic works in the Collection Lambert.

In 2014, in the exhibition the Collection Lambert had organised at the Prison Sainte-Anne in Avignon, entitled "La Disparition des lucioles", the artist compared a bust showing his self-portrait as Emperor Hadrien to a bust of Antinous.
From the poetry of that installation sprang the shared idea of contrasting ancient or classical sculptures made by Francesco Vezzoli to a selection of works by the great artists in the 1960's, '70's, '80's, close to conceptual and minimal art, and who share a inextinguishable love for ancient history and classical art, such as Cy Twombly, Giulio Paolini and Louise Lawler.

The artist thus brings to bear, on Yvon Lambert's collection, a unique gaze. His gaze enjoins the public to bring an open mind and a new, sensitive look to the works displayed in Avignon.
