Current exhibitions

Julian Charrière - Towards No Earthly Pole

The Aargauer Kunsthaus presents Towards No Earthly Pole, a solo exhibition of the young western Swiss artist Julian Charrière (b. 1987 in Morges). The centrepiece of the show is Charrière’s titular new film, which he started working on in 2017. For this work the artist travelled to some of the most inhospitable areas of our planet like the Antarctic, Greenland and Iceland, as well as to extraordinary local topographies like the Rhône and Aletsch glaciers and Mont Blanc.

The fascination of Emma Kunz (1892–1963) has never been greater than it is today. At the same venue where her work was discovered for art, the oeuvre of the Aargau researcher, healer and artist is now presented alongside contemporary artistic practises. The latter reflect on Kunz’ work or particular topics related to her field of activity.
