To inaugurate a series of events to celebrate the art centre’s 30th anniversary, eac. is delighted to take part in a collection swap and has chosen to invite the Lambert collection, which is celebrating its own 20thanniversary, to exhibit in the Albers-Honegger Donation gallery space.
There is a rather unique symbiosis between the Albers-Honegger Donation and the Lambert Donation.
Endowed with 700 and 556 works respectively, both collections were set up through private initiative: Gottfried Honegger and Sybil Albers-Barrier in Mouans-Sartoux and Yvon Lambert in Avignon put their collections into public municipal buildings over several decades (the Mouans-Sartoux Château and Hôtel de Caumont in Avignon) before deciding to donate their artworks to the French nation.
Both collections are today listed with the National Foundation for Contemporary Art (FNAC), a French State public collection that is managed by the National Centre for Visual Arts (CNAP).
Original and very often eluding historical and aesthetic classification, both collections cross-reference different interpretations of contemporary art history. Untrammelled by convention, each collection nevertheless draws accolades because of its coherency.
In April 2020, the gallery space in the building designed by Gigon&Guyer in 2004 will become home for a year to a selection of works from Avignon. In exchange, selected works from the Albers-Honegger Donation will be exhibited in the Hôtel de Caumont gallery.
