Un art de notre temps #2 - Works from the Collection Lambert
Collection Lambert continues its series of displays of the work in its collections. Through a wide, sensitive panorama of works, the museum explores the singular nature of this unique collection, built up by a major figure in contemporary art.
The breakthroughs that occurred in the 1960's and 1970's and the new ways of considering art that they led to, fostered artistic practices in the last 60 years and nurtured Yvon Lambert's vision. The breakthroughs that occurred in the 1960's and 1970's and the new ways of considering art that they led to fostered artistic practices in the last 60 years and nurtured Yvon Lambert's vision. Major works are disruptions with previous creations and open new possibilities for art. They provoke new perspectives on history, with which they forge conscious, new relations – as described by Jean Frémon in his work on Robert Ryman, to whom Collection Lambert pays tribute and devotes two entire rooms.
Minimal art, conceptual art and land art, fields in which Yvon Lambert was one of the very first proponents in Europe, start off this new itinerary at the museum, in the company of some of the main players in these foundational artistic movements. Visitors also see the return to figurative painting in the early 1980’s, photography, video and installation, all of which are essential to art and figure in Yvon Lambert’s ongoing choices, resolutely open to the future, far from any academic influences.
