Yvon Lambert to close

Sad news:

"Yvon Lambert has announced that he will close his gallery, which he first opened in 1966 on rue de L’Échaudé in Paris with exhibitions that promoted early Conceptual and Minimalist work by artists including Carl Andre and Lawrence Weiner. In 1977, Lambert opened a larger space in the Marais district, showing work by artists like Joseph Beuys, Louise Lawler, and Allan McCollum, before moving to his present space on rue Vieille du Temple in 1986, where he worked with Nan Goldin, Joan Jonas, Jenny Holzer, and Glenn Ligon among others. In 2003, he opened a gallery in New York, which closed in 2011. The dealer plans to devote his attention to his foundation, the Collection Lambert en Avignon, which he opened in 2000 to showcase his privately owned artwork, which includes more than 1200 pieces by contemporary artists."
