On April 21, 2019, a place of memory and an exhibition center dedicated to Lebadang was realized with the opening of Lebadang Memory Space in Kim Son hamlet, Thuy Bang commune, Huong Thuy town, Thùa Thiên Huê province.
In the 1960s, Lebadang gathered a set of 46 drawings (16,8 x 16,3 cm) made in Indian ink which he called Genesis and represents the evolution of species according to him.
In 1985, Lebadang started on what was undoubtedly to be his major work, the series of Espaces (Spaces). There are works on paper combining various techniques by using collage and superimposition, mid way between sculptures and bas-relief, like a synthesis reaching beyond these two forms of expression.
In 2015, Myshu Nguyên – Lê made a donation to the Cernuschi Museum (Museum of the city of Paris for the Arts of Asia) notably an important set of works on paper reflecting the artist’s extensive research and technical innovations in the field of printmaking. The donation includes 33 prints, a portfolio of 17 lithographs, 2 watercolours and 2 paintings.
From 2 November 2016 to 5 March 2017, twenty works by Lebadang were exhibited amongst the recent acquisitions of the Cernuschi Museum, highlighting the donation made by Myshu Nguyên – Lê to the museum’s collection.
