Located in the heart of a pine forest, perched on the heights of a hill right next to the Mediterranean Sea and the bay of Tamaris, Villa Tamaris was built at the end of the nineteenth century by an officer of the Merchant Navy, Blaise Michel Pacha. It extends over 3700 m2. Since it was opened in 1995, this TPM art center has been reflecting the continuous change and constant renewal of painting but has also opened up to all fields of contemporary creation.

As of 2022 "Toulon Provence Méditerranée Metropolis" intends to make Villa Tamaris a place dedicated to photography and endorse the great protagonists of photography and video art of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries

Untold Stories

"Untold Stories" is the last exhibition organized by Peter Lindbergh himself shortly before his passing in September 2019 for the Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf (February 2020).

Born in 1944 and raised in Duisburg, the German photographer spent two years working on putting together this collection of 140 photographs that provide an overview of his work from the early 1980s to the present. This exhibition, originally produced for the Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf and faithfully presented for the first time in France, highlights this master's very personal approach to his work.
