GBG Privée - Lacoste

GBG Privée - Lacoste

In 2016 Bob Gysin set up a new gallery in southern France near the magnificent ruins of Marquis de Sade's mythical castle in the small town of Lacoste. From June until September, important works by Swiss artists will be on display at Galerie Privée alongside a part of the permanent collection of the Bob + Kathrin Gysin Foundation. Surrounded by the Luberon National Park with its resonant past, Galerie Privée offers art lovers an opportunity to see and rediscover recent and earlier works by renowned artists in the fabled light of Provence.  In addition to works in the gallery, a site-specific work by Carmen Perrin can be seen in the open air.

This year, an exhibition with works by Cécile Wick are shown in the Galerie Privée. The images shown evoke impressive moods and enter into a dialogical relationship with the landscaped exterior of the gallery.

There are other works from the foundation's collection spread around the house - in particular by Klaus Born, Matthias Bosshard, Raphael Kessler, Bessie Nager, Adrian Schiess and Andrea Wolfensberger.
