Art contemporain, Galerie Pascal Lainé

From the outset in 1988, the Galerie Pascal Lainé is showing an eclectic choice of artist, who mostly have a studio in Provence, and also a few world renowned.
The last years in Gordes have been dedicated to Victor Vasarely, where after the closing of his museum, the gallery kept his presence in Gordes with a permanent exhibition.
After 13 years in Gordes, the gallery moved to Avignon. The big exhibition la Beauté, and the opening of the Yvon Lambert Collection spurred this new implantation. It will be marked by a large retrospective show of Joe Downing at the Cloister Saint Louis, after which the Musée Calvet from Avignon bought a large painting and 9 collages with staples from the 50’s.
In 2007 Jean-Philippe Lacroze and Pascal Lainé moved the gallery to a larger space in Ménerbes at the foot of the Luberon.. The opening on 2007 has been dedicated to recent work of Joe Downing who has been represented since 1993 by the gallery. This close and long co-operation gave birth to many graphic editions and in particular during 2005 a portfolio with poems and lithographs named “ A Ménerbes”
The end of 2007 will sadly be marked by the disappearance of Joe Downing, for which a tribute will be organized in spring, 2008.
The opening of his museum in Kentucky will be made next year under the shape of a visible private collection by appointment
