Collection LUMIÈRE, Marseilles

"The collective of art collectors LUMIÈRE was created in 2011. The group gathers 8 members mostly based in Marseilles and its region. It all started as the ordinary story of a bunch of friends who wished to engage together in the discovery of contemporary art.
Since the very beginning, the main focus has been the support to young artists. Thus, we have been buying artworks regularly, and collectively, in all European fairs.
The collection constitutes a sort of artworks’ library—which each member is free to enjoy with a rotation system—and composed of around 15 works by Ivan Argote, Lili Reynaud Dewar, Folkert De Jong, Kate Steciw, Georgia Russell, among others.
For a year now, LUMIÈRE has also been curating shows in a site called Atlantis, and as a new way to sponsor and support this thrilling young creation that unites LUMIÈRE’s members with the same passion." Sébastien Peyret

ART-O-RAMA will be the occasion for LUMIÈRE to enrich their young collection.
