The LGR Collection at MAMAC

MAMAC de Nice
Oct 3, 2013 3:55PM

September 21, 2013 - January 5, 2014, Contemporary Gallery

The "LGR Collection" brings together works collected by three established art enthusiasts from the French Riviera: Laurence, Gaëtane, and Roland. Collectors Gaëtane and Roland Botrel began their adventure in the late eighties through their encounters with artists like Vladimir Veličković, Paul Rebeyrolle, Erik Dietman or Pierre Buraglio. A few years later, their friend Laurence Climbeau joined their adventure.

Beyond the status of these collectors, their approach to collecting is based on the principle of supporting artists and disseminating their work. MAMAC's exhibition provides an opportunity to serve this purpose by exposing the collection to the public and by allowing the LGR be rediscovered in a museum context.

The thirty works included in the exhibition are representative of the collection in its entirety, which comprises over a hundred artworks and is assembled with consistence, selectivity, and constant change.

Open Tuesday through Sunday from 10am - 6pm.

Admission is free.
