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 Museum of Modern Art in the city of 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.

MAMAC, Nice (FR)    3 October 2020 - 28 March 2021

She-Bam Pow POP Wizz !
Les Amazones du POP

On the occasion of MAMAC's 30th anniversary, the exhibition looks back at a strong axis of its history: the face-off between France and the United States and the borrowing movements between New Realism and Pop Art. Behind the Franco-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle, an emblematic figure in the MAMAC collection, the exhibition retraces for the first time in France the history of a generation of European and North American artists who, between 1961 and 1973, opened the way to an alternative universe and boldly contributed to the invention or redefinition of international pop art.

Couvent de La Tourette, Éveux (FR)   22 September 2020 - 20 December 2020

Le Mural-nomade. Tapisseries modernes et contemporaines

Following on from an opening event held in 2009 to mark its 50th anniversary, the Convent de La Tourette, a religious masterpiece by Le Corbusier, located in Éveux near Lyon, is hosting an exhibition this autumn devoted to modern and contemporary tapestry, including the “Muralnomad” tapestries by Le Corbusier. This exhibition is an opportunity to discover the richness and diversity of tapestries created from the 1960s to the present day. Through its interplay of materials and colours and its monumental scale, tapestry is particularly well suited to dialogue with architecture.

Fondation Marguerite et Aimé Maeght, Saint-Paul-de-Vence (FR)    1 July 2020 - 22 November 2020

Jacques Monory

By way of a tribute, the Marguerite et Aimé Maeght Foundation is proposing the first monographic exhibition devoted to Jacques Monory since his death in 2018. Entitled simply Jacques Monory, the exhibition presents his career spanning sixty years and takes a fresh look at the work of this leading figure of the Narrative Figuration movement. This overview is arranged in a non-chronological way that aims, from one room to the next, to bring fully into play all the echoes and contrasts within this singular body of work that deserves revisiting.

Museum of Montmartre Renoir Gardens, Paris (FR)   28 February 2020 - 31 January 2021

Otto Freundlich (1878-1943) The Revelation of Abstraction

The Museum of Montmartre is devoting a major exhibition to one of the first great creators of non-figurative art, the German painter and sculptor Otto Freundlich (1878-1943). Organised in partnership with the Museum of Pontoise, home to the artist's studio collection since 1968, and the Sacré-Coeur Basilica, where two of his stained glass windows will be presented, the exhibition brings together nearly 80 artworks, including sculptures, paintings, stained glass, mosaics and graphic works. This unique ensemble will be accompanied by documents, writings and letters from artist friends – important testimonies of Freundlich’s daily life. This exhibition is the first of its kind in a Parisian museum since 1969.

Leopold Museum, Vienne (AT)   20 February 2020 - 10 January 2021

Hundertwasser – Schiele. Imagine Tomorrow

Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928–2000) shaped 20th-century art beyond the borders of Austria as a painter, designer of living spaces and pioneer of the environmental movement. His life-long, intense exploration of the personality and oeuvre of Egon Schiele (1890–1918) is largely unknown. Twenty years after Hundertwasser’s death, the Leopold Museum is dedicating an exhibition, conceived as a dialogue, to these two iconic artists, which comprises some 170 exhibits.
