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.

Hervé Télémaque
A Hopscotch of the Mind

It is the first time a museum in the United States has opened an exhibition on the work of Hervé Télémaque. Following an initial show at the Serpentine Gallery (London, UK) in 2021, Hervé Télémaque: A Hopscotch of the Mind comes to the Aspen Art Museum with a reconceptualised staging from artist Helen Marten. The exhibition includes paintings, objects, collages and assemblages from the late 1950s to present day. Télémaque’s subversive practice, combining archival and contemporary pop cultural references, traces histories and contemporary impact of racism, imperialism and colonialism.
