Collection Lambert, France

This summer, the Collection Lambert spotlights two major art figures of these past sixty years. Born out of two different generations but both made of light their primary matter, they are dedicated to the renewal of the sensible art experience within the institutions hosting their shows.

Absent from the permanent collection kept in Avignon, and despite Yvon Lambert’s devotion and admiration, Dan Flavin invests the ground level of the Hôtel de Montfaucon through a selection of prestigious lightworks created as a homage to great names of art history. This exhibition reveals between the lines the relationship maintained with Yvon Lambert. the art collector presented Dan Flavin’s pieces in 1974, and the artist gave him three diagrams.

On the first floor, in a vast room in which the twenty-six windows have been uncovered in such a way that the natural light can cross all over the space, Ann Veronica Janssens reacts to the presence of Dan Flavin’s artworks by imagining her exhibition in an authentic installation.

Jean-Charles Blais, a major figure in our collection discovered by Yvon Lambert in the 1980’s, exhibits a series of huge posters especially created for the three rooms at the entrance of the Hôtel de Caumont.

In the basement, the Collection Lambert continues its program dedicated to emerging creators with an exhibition devoted to Dana-Fiona Armour. The artist shows her research born from the conception of a hybrid plant; a new kind of organism, both human and vegetal, questioning our relationship to science in a mutating environment.

Following two difficult years punctuated by the pandemic limitations, this important summery celebration is also an invitation to our faithful partners who make the museum a lively place. Our visitors can benefit from other artistic propositions in the two exceptional courtyards and the museum galleries. The Festival d’Avignon entrusted us in that sense with Kubra Khademi’s committed works, author of the promotional manifesto for this 76th edition. The Rencontres de la Photographie d’Arles will be part of this exhibition, showcasing a selection of the Collection Lambert’s stock entitled Welcome to the Desert of the Real, as well as through the exceptional spectacle of Noémie Goudal and Maëlle Poesy, organized in collaboration with the Festival d’Avignon and our institution.
