Following on from its original home in Brussels, art organisation Fondation CAB has taken over a modernist art gallery in the south of France – and there’s space for overnight guests.
Parisian architect Charles Zana oversaw a full refurb of Fondation CAB’s new 1950s home, located in Saint-Paul-de-Vence. Founder and collector Hubert Bonnet describes the building’s curving white walls and huge windows as ‘the perfect match with Minimalist art.’
Work by Swiss artist Felice Varini – who’s daubed bright, interlocking orange circles on the windows – is displayed alongside pieces from Dan Flavin, Carle Andre and Donald Judd. There’s space for gallery-goers to browse books and order lunch, as well as four guest rooms decked out with pieces by the likes of Charlotte Perriand and Alvar Aalto.
There’s an extra feature in the gallery’s garden, where visitors can find – and rent – one of Jean Prouvé’s sought-after demountable prefab homes. It promises excellent views of the nearby Cap d’Antibes.
