The exhibition proposes a “snapshot” of French contemporary art collections through a selection of works acquired by private collectors during the three years prior to the exhibition. Its ambition is to give an on-the-spot appreciation of private collections as they are being made, observe the options being taken and the choices as they happen in current creation. Making up a unique panorama of recent acquisitions by French collectors, they demonstrate the vitality of collectors of different sensibilities and their determined, even fervent, commitment to the art “of their times”.

The fourth exhibition of “De leur temps” presents a new snapshot of private collections with works acquired since January 2009. After the Strasbourg interlude reserved for the 10th anniversary of the Marcel Duchamp Prize, the triennial “De leur temps” returns to its original intention of showing the “taste” and eclecticism of French private collectors.

Organized in cooperation with the Musée des beaux arts de Nantes and Blandine Chavanne, this new exhibition will unveil works by French and overseas artists in the “Hangar à Bananes”. This exhibition space destined for temporary exhibitions has a surface area of 1500m2 and will focus on the contemporary art market in our country.

More than 100 collectors are participating to this event.

The exhibition “De leur temps (2)” follows on from the first one held in the Musée de Tourcoing in 2004. Once again, this exhibition wishes to open a window onto French collections in order to highlight the artists, their works, their galleries and their collectors. The concept remains the same. This is to show contemporary works in every artistic form, provided they have been acquired by French (or residing in France) private collectors over a period between the 1st of January 2004 and the 31st of December 2006. In the same way, almost all of the selected works have been created recently (after the 80s).

In particular, works from some 90 French and overseas artists, mainly from the young generation are on show, forming a rich and diversified panorama of art today. Among them: Kader Attia, Sylvia Bächli, Ronan Barrot, Gilles Barbier, Sophie Calle, Wim Delvoye, Tatjana Doll, Sylvie Fajfrowska, Gregory Forstner, Matthieu Mercier, Valérie Belin, Kolkoz, Isabelle Levenez, Philippe Mayaux, Ernesto Neto, Javier Perez, Massimo, Peter Saul, Vitali, Xavier Veilhan and Erwin Wurm…

This new “snapshot” of French contemporary art collections has enabled people to discover a selection of 120 works including painting, sculpture, photos, videos and installations recently acquired by 90 private collectors. It allows people to have an on-the-spot appreciation of private collections, observe the options taken and the choices made by collectors in relation to the diversity of their own sensibility and their commitment to the “art of their times”.

Many people think that when it comes to contemporary art, the French market is a real desert. Can it really be that in France only the museums and other institutions interest themselves in today’s creation and that outside of these privileged places, contemporary artists face a lack of disinterest from the French public. The ADIAF – which is the biggest group of private art collectors in France – wished to refute these assertions which are very detrimental to the artists and hinder the development of a healthy market. Because, when we realize the French contemporary collectors buy as much if not more than all the FRACs in France combined, we cannot seriously uphold such opinions.

Because of the great number of artists shown (not less than 150 artists) and their emotional dimension (200 works chosen and loaned by 70 collectors), the exhibition “DE LEUR TEMPS – Collections privées françaises” is even more of a snapshot of French private collections because only acquisitions from the past three years have been selected (works acquired between the 1st of January 2000 and the 30th of June 2003). This is the first initiative of this importance in France since “Passions Privées” organized by the Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris, under the direction of Suzanne Pagé, nearly ten years ago.

Organized in coproduction with the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Tourcoing during the LILLE 2004, capitale européenne de la culture event, this exhibition demonstrates not only the commitment of private collectors and the passion they feel for the works but also more especially their mobilization side by side with the artists and the actors on the art market. All forms of expression are being exhibited: installations, drawings, photos, videos, painting and sculpture… and the profiles of the artists on show are as multiple and varied as those of the collectors whether they are radical or eclectic in their approach. But beyond any aesthetic consideration, “DE LEUR TEMPS – Collections privées française” especially demonstrates – as pointed out by Suzanne Pagé in the foreword to the exhibition’s catalogue – “that today there is an interest in contemporary art from an ever increasing circle of people” and that collectors are one of the determining and driving factors on the dynamic French scene.
