LaM, museum of modern art contemporary art and art brut in the heart of nature

Located 20 minutes from Lille, in Villeneuve d’Ascq, LaM is a garden museum with an atypical collection, offering a unique panorama of 20th and 21st century art.

Wealthy collections

Inaugurated in 1983 to house the donation of modern art by Geneviève and Jean Masurel, the LaM has become, with the donation of works by L’Aracine in 1999, the benchmark museum for art brut.

With 4,000 m² of exhibition space, discover a rich collection of over 8,000 works by Georges Braque, Daniel Buren, Aloïse Corbaz, Henry Darger, Paul Klee, Fernand Léger, Augustin Lesage, Annette Messager, Joan Miró, Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso, Kiki Smith, and many others… Retrospectives of major international artists punctuate the seasons.

In a jewel case of greenery

LaM is also a remarkable park, home to monumental sculptures by Alexander Calder, Richard Deacon and Pablo Picasso, as well as a library with over 40,000 books, an auditorium, a bookshop-boutique and a café-restaurant. Throughout the year, the LaM team welcomes you for guided or self-guided tours, art workshops, shows, meetings and conferences.

A cultural destination in a green setting, included in the City Pass!

In 2024, LaM will undergo a major facelift, starting with a series of works in the spring, and closing completely in the autumn.

Open Tuesday to Sunday, 10am – 6pm.
Closed Mondays, 01/01, 01/05 and 25/12.
