Since 2011, the Fondation Gandur pour l'Art lends its works to the most prestigious institutions in the museum world so that they can be discovered by as many people as possible : from the Juan March Foundation in Madrid to the Hermitage in Lausanne, from the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao to the Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris.

The Foundation wished to briefly retrace the purpose of the exhibitions for which it has lent works. These texts are largely inspired and drawn from the sites relating to the exhibitions of the borrowing institutions, for which they are thanked here. 
The Foundation is pleased to be able to contribute to the influence of the artists and the different cultures exhibited through these loans.

Artgenève 2020, Genève (CH)   30 January 2020 - 2 February 2020


Following on from the innovative presentation and juxtaposition of works from its four collections for last year’s event, the Fondation Gandur pour l’Art returns to artgenève in 2020 with a display focusing on artists of the Supports/Surfaces group, regarded as the last avant-garde movement. Structured around iconic pieces from the 1960s and 1970s, it shows how these artists brought painting and the artwork itself into question.

Musée archéologique du Val d'Oise, Guiry-en-Vexin (FR)   12 October 2019 - 20 September 2020


After the ArchéoLab at Pully, the exhibition Archéonimaux reinvents itself at the Musée archéologique du Val d’Oise. It is aimed at a young audience, and addresses in a playful way the relationship between mankind and animals, through 5 challenges to solve and experience. The theme is illustrated by some forty original objects from the Antiquity representing animals, on loan from the archaeological collections of the Fondation Gandur pour l’Art; moreover, three other animals from the Musée du Louvre, the Musée du Quai Branly and the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle of Paris have joined this little herd for the occasion.
