While exhibitions have already revealed some of the major works collected by clothes designer agnès b. for over thirty years, the idea of carrying out her multi-faceted portrait project was never conceived on this scale. Both designer, and director of a film selected at the Venice Mostra, My name is Hmmmm, intimately linked with the world of music, patron of the arts agnès b. has been, above all, a great discoverer of artists since the opening of the agnès b. Galerie du Jour in 1983. 

 

Sharing the same passion for art, the same love of creation and individuals involved with the most sensitive aspects of life, agnès b. and Yvon Lambert connect on so many levels both through their intense involvement with the artists they are involved with, and also because of their eclectic nature and avant-garde vision, making them witnesses of the times they live in. 

 

So, it’s no surprise that 400 works from the agnès b. collection now adorn the spaces of our institution, like so many witnesses drawing a portrait of this woman freed from all convention and a collection focussed on the avant-garde, including works acquired to be shared. 

 

This exhibition takes the form of a journey of the senses and is organised around great artists she has often been the first to collect, and also worldly relationships or unusual aesthetics and strong ideas that seem like happy obsessions. 

 

Just as commitment and politics permeate agnès b’s. own journey through and through, they will make their mark on the entirety of this exceptional presentation. Painting, love, reverie, music, experimental cinema, adolescence, modernity, the avant-garde, the transcending of established borders, whether physical, social or mental, Africa – these are all aesthetic landscapes offered to the visitor to explore through the richness and diversity of the exhibited works, crossed by the need for total commitment to the experience of life and the struggle for freedom.
