Each exhibition is a new opportunity to forge bonds between works, distill new meanings, and reveal coherence and shared sensitivities.

In 1992, the agnès b. collection was shown for the first time at Espace des Arts, Chalon-sur-Saône, in an exhibition entitled Un regard sur l’art contemporain. La collection agnès b, which then traveled to Musée Picasso in Antibes. Two subsequent exhibitions highlighted the collection’s deep roots in photography: in 2002 at Centre National de la Photographie in Paris; and in 2002 at Pavillon des Arts in Nogent-sur-Marne. In 2004, Les Abattoirs de Toulouse held the first full-scale mixed-media presentation of the collection. In October 2008, the prestigious C/O Berlin showed photographs from the collection to coincide with the publication of a monograph of the collection edited by Editions JRP Ringier. In 2015, LaM — the Lille Metropole Museum of modern art — held the exhibition Un regard sur la collection agnès b. In 2016, the collection took up residence in the Paris’s Museum of the History of Immigration for a unique dialogue with contemporary pieces in the museum’s collection as part of the Vivre! exhibition. In 2017, no fewer than 400 works moved to La Collection Lambert in Avignon for On aime l’art! Most recently, in 2019, the collection was invited to the National School of Photography in Arles for the inaugural exhibition of its new building.

The fonds de dotation agnès b. maintains and presents this unique collection of contemporary art by lending numerous works every year to major exhibitions organized worldwide. In 2019, in the 13th arrondissement of Paris, agnès b. will fulfill one of her greatest dreams with the opening of La Fab, where her collection will be shown to the public.
