The  Lambert Collection, Museum of Contemporary Art, Avignon, presents a selection of artworks from agnès b.'s  art collection scheduled during the Grand Arles Express, an "off the wall" program of the Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie d’Arles.
agnès b., having collected works of art for over 30 years has already exhibited elements of her collection, but to bring together a body of work revealing the multifaceted portrait of her collection has never been shown on this scale. Bound by the same passion for art and love for creation and human beings, agnès b. and Yvon Lambert connect as much by their fusional implication with the artists for whom they are committed as their eclecticism and their avant-gardist look, making them witnesses of their time. It is therefore natural, that from July 2017, 400 artworks of agnès b.’s collection will be exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art, each piece a testimony revealing a portrait of this liberated, independent woman; a collection turned towards the avant-garde, artworks that were acquired to be shared. This exhibition not only presents known established artists whose works were acquired by agnès early in their careers, but also more recent acquisitions with a new aesthetic presenting strong ideas which appear like happy obsessions. If commitment and politics permeate throughout agnès b.’s history, they will make their mark throughout this exceptional presentation. Painting, love, musing, music, experimental movies, teenage years, modernity, the avant-garde, breaking down physical, social or mental borders,  Africa, all of these aesthetic landscapes can be discovered through the wealth and the diversity of the exhibited artworks, interwoven with a great passion for life and the fight for freedom.
