In 1966, Yvon Lambert opened his first gallery on the rue de L’Échaudé in Paris, France where he began to exhibit American artists. He showed founders of conceptualism, minimalism and land art such as Carl Andre and Lawrence Weiner.

Lambert left the 6th arrondissement in 1977 for rue du Grenier St Lazare in the Marais, where he exhibited artists including Miquel Barceló, Joseph Beuys, Louise Lawler, Jean-Charles Blais, and Allan McCollum. In 1986 he moved again to the glass-roofed space on rue Vieille du Temple where Lambert affirmed strong relationships with artists such as Joan Jonas, Nan Goldin, Jenny Holzer, Thierry Kuntzel, Glenn Ligon and Anselm Kiefer. Yvon Lambert Paris closed its location at 108 rue Vieille du Temple in December 2014

In 2003, Lambert established his international representation by founding a new gallery in Chelsea, New York City. From 2003-2004 the Program Director of the gallery was the independent art curator and historian Patricia Martín. In 2005, the New York City gallery moved to West 21st street in a 700 square metres (7,500 square feet) space designed by Richard Gluckman in collaboration with Thomas Zolli and Rachel D. Vancelette.

Yvon Lambert announced on his 75th birthday, not long after the attack on Andres Serrano’s “Piss Christ” at Fondation Yvon Lambert in Avignon, that he would close his New York location. A large group show opened on the 21 May 2011 with many of the gallery’s New York artists, marked the closing.

Lambert is vice-chairman of the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles.
