A contemporary art exhibition is held in the ancient vat-house and cellars at Château Lynch-Bages every summer. In 1989 Jean-Michel Cazes, the chateau owner, asked Pierre Alechinsky to illustrate that year’s exceptional vintage. Every year since, an artist has been asked to create an original work for the chateau, building an impressive permanent collection of artwork over the years, including works by Jean Le Gac, Manuel Arroyo, Sandro Chia, Titus Carmel, Donald Lipski, Jiri Kolar, Donald Sultan, Lourdes Castro and Tan Swie Hian.
The contemporary art exhibition is held from May to October. The exhibition this year is a retrospective of works by artists previously displayed at the chateau.
