The Collection Lambert in Avignon
A private collection, unique in France, which currently includes nearly 2000 works, and is the fruit of the complicity that has united the dealer-collector with his artists for many years. In 2000, he decided to deposit part of his personal collection in Avignon in the Hôtel de Caumont with a view to a future donation to the State. This donation of more than 550 works to the State was made official in July 2012, and an architectural project led by the architects Cyrille and Laurent Berger brought the museum’s surface area to almost 4,000 m2 in 2015, with the addition of the Hôtel de Montfaucon.

The Vasarely Foundation in Aix en Provence
Inaugurated in 1976, the Centre architectonique d’Aix-en-Provence, classified as a historical monument in 2013, is the core of Victor Vasarely’s plastic and scientific project. At the heart of a lumino-kinetic building, 16 hexagonal modules present 44 monumental architectural integrations whose common thread is optical art. These works are the result of a fruitful collaboration between the artist, architects and companies, with the aim of creating the “polychrome city of happiness”.
