CONTEMPORARY ART CENTRE


CONTEMPORARY ART CENTRE OF AUBERIVE ABBEY

An atypical place, like most of the artists exhibited, which contrasts with the sanitized rooms of art centers or museums. A bias that corresponds well to this collection, which does not bother with categories dictated by institutions, and which likes painters recognized by the art market as well as so-called “naïve” or “marginal” creators.

THE VOLOT COLLECTION

Founded by the Volot family, the Volot Collection has one of the largest private collections of figurative contemporary expressionism and singular art in France.
