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.

Boire avec les dieux

Produced by the Foundation for Wine Culture and Civilisations alongside Jean-Yves Marin, and Isabelle Tassignon, exhibition curators, Drinking with the gods presents around sixty antique works and three monumental creations specially designed for the exhibition by street artists. Through a journey marked out by contemporary sound and visual effects, Drinking with the gods highlights the close ties established by Graeco-Roman civilisation between wine, gods and men and lets us discover the many faces of Dionysus, the chief god of wine - called Bacchus in Rome -, and the wealth of rituals associated with him.

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.

Curator : Céline Blondeau
