Château du Rivau brings together medieval and Renaissance architecture, garden and landscaping, Contemporary art and art de vivre. Located in Touraine, in the town of Lémeré (Indre-et-Loire), it is part of the network of the great heritage sites within the Loire. The estate consists of a magnificent fortress dating back to the 13th century and Renaissance stables classified as Historic Monuments. Entirely refurbished by the owners, the Château du Rivau attracts many visitors to its gardens, which have been awarded the prestigious Jardins remarquables label. The garden provides a backdrop for a park with 20 monumental Contemporary art sculptures, including pieces by Lilian Bourgeat, Jean-Pierre Raynaud, Philippe Ramette, and more. These sculptures echo references from the collection exhibited within the château, which includes pieces by Jan Fabre, Théo Mercier, Julien Salaud, Wim Delvoye, and Pierre Ardouvin, amongst others. The exhibitions have brought together Contemporary artists, whose works resonate with themes such as Hommage à Léonard (2019) and Le goût de l’art (2020).
