To be seen in Avignon this summer
From June 2 to November 15, 2020, the Lambert Collection is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its presence in Avignon.
For the occasion, the collector chooses 13 artists to each of whom he assigns an entire room of the Hôtel de Caumont, a historic building opened on June 27, 2000 to host this museum project that was unprecedented in the French artistic landscape. The place left to each will allow to reaffirm the richness of the collection preserved in the papal city and to offer the public the opportunity to enter, room after room, into the universe of a major artist in the collection.
This new involvement of the collector will mark the starting point of an annual series of exhibitions organized through his eyes.
The exhibition offers a special look at the work of Nan Goldin, whose considerable collection preserved in Avignon is presented for the first time in its entirety. This is also celebrated in the third Cahier de la Collection, which appears on this occasion (from June 27 to September 20, 2020).
The artists, in order of their appearance in the rooms of the museum:
Sol LeWitt, Donald Judd, Robert Barry, Christian Boltanski, Richard Tuttle, Cy Twombly, Daniel Buren, Andres Serrano, Anselm Kiefer, Miquel Barceló, David Horwitz, Robert Combas, Jean-Charles Blais, Niele Toroni, Robert Ryman.
Exhibition curators: Yvon Lambert and Stéphane Ibars
The museum is fully accessible to people with reduced mobility.
