De leur temps 6 - Collectionner au XXIe siècle



@ Collection Lambert
5 Rue Violette
84000 Avignon

Since 2004, the Association for the International Diffusion of French Art (ADIAF) has been organizing a triennial exhibition entitled De leur temps which presents a selection of the latest acquisitions of French collectors who are members of the association.Testifying to the commitment of private collectors to contemporary artistic creation, this exhibition provides an overview of the research carried out by passionate collectors with different sensibilities.

After Tourcoing in 2004 (Musée des beaux-arts), Grenoble in 2007 (Musée des beaux-arts), Strasbourg in 2010 (Musée d'art contemporain), Nantes in 2013 (Hangar à bananes), Villeurbanne in 2016 (IAC), it is Avignon at the Collection Lambert, musée d'art contemporain, which is hosting the sixth edition of this triennial from 14 December 2019 to 15 March 2020.

For this new edition, De leur temps takes on a new and more ambitious form, as it delves into the heart of the acquisitions made not only over the last three years, as in previous editions, but since the beginning of the 21st century: almost twenty years of acquisitions.

The exhibition presents no less than 182 works on loan from 77 collectors, who were asked to choose the major works they have purchased since 2001 from living artists. The enthusiasm of the lenders was commensurate with the ambition of the project: more than 650 works were submitted to the selection committee, made up of ADIAF officials and the curatorial team of the Collection Lambert.

This considerable collection of works from private collections is housed in the rooms of the private mansions of the Avignon institution. Since its creation in 2000, the Collection Lambert, itself based on Yvon Lambert's collection, has had at heart to share with as many people as possible the passions of certain private actors for contemporary art through exhibitions that have become emblematic (Collection d'artistes, Theorema, La disparition des lucioles, On aime l'art...!!).

Through the richness and diversity of the proposals, due to the commitment and investment of the 77 collectors to whom it pays homage, the exhibition presented in Avignon explores all the artistic practices of the beginning of this century just out of adolescence, with the upheavals in the creation and under-standing of forms, the implementation of new sensitive devices, new ways of thinking,

and new gestures and questioning. But it also reveals the audacity, clairvoyance and passion at work among the art lovers of their time, showing what can be collected in France in the 21st century.

The exhibition is curated by Stéphane Ibars, in charge of the artistic programming of the Collection Lambert.
