Collection Lambert opened its doors in June 2000 during the celebrations for ‘Avignon – European Cultural Capital’. With a view to making a future donation, gallerist and collector Yvon Lambert decided to place on loan 350 artworks. Housed in an 18th century mansion, these works are borrowed from his personal collection that at this stage comprises more than 1200 artworks dating from the 1960s to the present day. The event ‘À fripon fripon et demi’ (English translation: ‘How to catch a thief with a thief’) focused on children and their art, with a new room in the museum specially devoted to their work. For the occasion, the Collection Lambert looked back over four years of educational initiatives with projects by On Kawara, Claude Lévêque and Joey Kötting.
