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.

The Family Show

Gallery Steinsland Berliner is proud to present The Family Show, a group exhibition featuring work by 29 Swedish and international artists.

The Family Show is the continuation of a treasured GSB-tradition of closing out the year with a celebratory group exhibition. For us, these exhibitions are a symbol of appreciation towards our artists and clientele as well as a representation of what’s currently happening at the gallery.

For The Family Show, we have invited all the artists that we work with to participate in the show and to extend the invitation to another artist of their choosing. This gives us, and you, the opportunity to get to know artists that aren’t a part of the gallery’s regular programme. Our hope is that The Family Show is experienced as equal parts comfortingly familiar and excitingly novel

Pourquoi faire ; Pour quoi faire

Is working always doing? To be an artist, is it to work? To be active as a volunteer, is it working? To learn and transmit, is it to produce something? And all this, for what purpose? What do we produce? Why and how? What are our choices?

Perhaps the trigger for this desire to reflect with artists on these themes was a survey conducted by the Belgian Ministry of Economic Affairs and commissioned by the European Commission. Randomly selected households were invited to answer questionnaires about their work, their occupation: did they have any? were they looking for any? related to their diploma? had their situation changed in the last three months? about thirty questions, asked three times in two years. None of these questions dealt with volunteering, learning, artistic creation (of any kind), thinking and thinking, or any non-directly paid activity. As if "being busy", "working" necessarily means having a paid job. As if "working" necessarily means producing a good or service that can be valued in euros.

We relayed these concerns to the interviewers...who were unable to answer us anything other than "this is not provided for in the questionnaire".

We also had the opportunity to discuss these notions of fatigue, burn-out, malaise at work, loss of meaning, emptiness, absurdity of tasks, individual and collective responsibility which are so much talked about at the moment.
This is what we wanted to discuss in this exhibition: trying to approach and talk about the meaning of "doing something", explored from different angles through the works of contemporary visual artists.
For the occasion we also commissioned and co-produced three specific works (Marc Buchy, Martin Le Chevallier and Nøne Futbol Club). And, in particular, Julien Prévieux has given us the honour of showing his recently created video for the first time.

It is thanks to these artists, some well known, others less so, it is thanks to their works (videos, sculptures, actions, conceptual or very material, with humour or gravity) that we hope to be able to share with you some thoughts on these subjects.

The 14 works on display come from private collections, galleries or directly from the artists themselves. Thanks to Violène Verduron, the Servais Family Collection, anonymous lenders and artists for their support and trust.We also thank Célia Grégot, Carole Lallemand, Emma Ricci, Boris Lafargue and Nøne Futbol Club for their precious and essential help during the preparation and editing. Thanks also to Chantal Vanbellinghen for the ice and the availability of her workshop.

Persona grata ?

Through hospitality, the impossible happens.
Jacques Derrida

"Persona grata? " is the legacy of the initial exhibition presented from October 2018 to January 2019 in the two museums, the MAC VAL and the National Museum of Immigration History. This hanging, partially renewed in September 2019, presents more than one hundred works that resonate with historical pieces from the collection with very recent acquisitions, exhibited here for the first time.

"Persona grata? "invites us to ask ourselves...

Hospitality is today in question, even in danger. If the city of tomorrow is taking shape on the coasts, borders and jungles of today's Europe, gratitude and hospitality are not its founding pillars.
If welcoming too often rhymes with punishment, then extending a hand becomes an act of vandalism. Just as welcoming the other can only be considered because it is prevented, hospitality today is thwarted, even illegal.
Invitation has been the keyword of the MAC VAL since its inception. The invitation to artists, to the public, to currents of thought, to social movements, to what creates the world of the moment. And if hospitality is at the heart of its philosophy, it so happens that hostility is often expressed through the works in its collection.

Initially, with "Persona grata" at the MAC VAL and the National Museum of the History of Immigration, we defended this universal and humanist notion. Today, we pose it in the light of reality, as a contemporary subject to be questioned.

Indeed, the works in the MAC VAL collection and their placement in space, the relationships and meanings that weave together embody the ambivalence of the notion of hospitality, which today can only be glimpsed in the light of its opposite, inhospitality. Like genealogists of the interiority of the collection, we can thus be caught up in a jerky and rapid rhythm of works that respond to each other, agree with each other, follow the same thought or clash with each other. And contradict each other. Such is the world. Dual, contradictory, thwarted and terribly constrained, hospitality is today being fought in our society, just as it is also a fight. If it implies peace at last regained, it is because beforehand there is conflict, there is a war to flee (economic, ecological, climatic...).

Bird’s Thoughts

In 2017, the French Ministry of Culture, relaunched a residency program for artists in companies, and accompanied 13 projects in France in 2018.

For Bourgogne Franche-Comté, the association Interface has partnered with the Adhex Technologies company based in Chenôve to invite Nøne Futbol Club.

Since January 2018, the dialogue has been established between the world of the company, its know-how, its production tools and the artistic thought, the desires and motivations of creativity of this pair of artists. The bird's thoughts exhibition is an opportunity to share the fruits of this collaboration.
