Works at the Collection Lambert - From Sol LeWitt to Jean-Michel Basquiat AVIGNON

5 November to 26 May 2019, see details below. As of summer 2018, works from the permanent collection at the Lambert Collection are displayed all year long at the Caumont Mansion. The works rotate and the public can see all the collection's masterpieces.

This new display has been designed to provide a wide, sensitive panorama that reflects the eye of the famous art dealer and collector. The great names of art from the second half of the 20th century and current creation, new works that lead to new discoveries.
The exhibition explores artistic revolutions sparked in the 1960's (conceptual art, minimal art, land art) and the connections between past artists and the new generation.

The first close-up was organised around Sol LeWitt, for the Collection has a magnificent ensemble of 38 works. This first focus has been completed, starting on 10 November, with a second focus devoted to Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Just at the time that the Fondation Vuitton is celebrating Basquiat in Paris in a great monographic exhibition, the Collection Lambert takes a close look at the special relationship that was woven between Yvon Lambert and Jean-Michel Basquiat, who met in New York in 1982. Basquiat held his last French exhibition in Yvon Lambert's gallery in 1987 just one year before his untimely death. Monumental paintings, drawings, objects and artist's book take over two room in the Caumont Mansion through to summer 2019.

Tuesday to Sunday 11am to 6pm. Closed 25 Dec. and 1 Jan.
