Works from the Lafayette Anticipations Collection

Curator: Anne Dressen

The museum will be presenting a selection of works by French and international contemporary artists from the 330 pieces in the Lafayette Anticipations Collection – the Moulin Family Endowment Fund.

It will be the first time that part of the Lafayette Anticipations Collection has been displayed in a museum. The exhibition, which features some forty major works, is structured around installations (sculptural, video, and performance) acquired by the fund since 2005 and is intended to provide an overview of some of the most recent developments in contemporary art. The exhibition also reflects the ability of artists to interrogate and decipher our fast-changing world. While the outside world often informs and stimulates the creations of artists, they in turn have an impact on our perception of it.
