Located in Villeneuve d’Ascq, 20 minutes outside Lille, the LaM - Lille Métropole Musée d’art moderne, d’art contemporain et d’art brut – is widely acclaimed for its prestigious collection of modern art boasting masterpieces by such prominent artists as Georges Braque, André Derain, Henri Laurens, Fernand Léger, Joan Miró, Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso and Kees Van Dongen. The LaM also harbours more than 1,000 contemporary artworks. The artists represented include Art & Language, Lewis Baltz, Alighiero Boetti, Daniel Buren, Robert Filliou, Dennis Oppenheim, Mimmo Rotella and Rirkrit Tiravanija.
In 1999 the association L’Aracine donated its collection of over 3,500 works of Art Brut to the museum. Added to at regular intervals, this collection has since grown to more than 5,000 exhibits by Aloïse Corbaz, Henry Darger, Auguste Forestier, Augustin Lesage, André Robillard, Willem Van Genk, Adolf Wölfli and Carlo Zinelli among others. This is not only one of the largest such collections in Europe, but also the only one to be on show alongside modern and contemporary art pieces.
The LaM, housed in a striking building by Roland Simounet, extended by Manuelle Gautrand, is set within a sculpture park. Take a stroll around and you’ll come across works by Alexander Calder, Richard Deacon, Eugène Dodeigne, Jacques Lipchitz and Pablo Picasso. This impressive and world-unique outdoor exhibition is on a par with the one to be found at the Kröller-Müller Museum, which is one of Europe’s largest.
