Fondation Beyeler

MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY MASTERPIECES
From Monet, Cézanne, Van Gogh by way of Picasso, Matisse, Klee, Giacometti to Warhol and Bacon as well as ethnographic art from Africa, Alaska and Oceania: with some 300 masterpieces from the 20th and 21st centuries, the Beyeler Collection’s main focus is on Classic Modernism.
Inaugurated in 1997 and set in an idyllic park, the museum was designed by the world-renowned architect Renzo Piano. The Fondation Beyeler, the most-visited art museum in Switzerland, owes its special appeal to its harmonious combination of exceptional art, picturesque nature and fascinating architecture. Every year, it shows up to four temporary exhibitions including projects in public spaces and just as many new presentations of the permanent collection. Recent exhibitions include “Gerhard Richter”, “Edgar Degas”, “Jeff Koons” and “Paul Gauguin”.

Current exhibitions

Roni Horn "You are the Weather" - Fokus-Ausstellung

-
Diesen Herbst präsentiert die Fondation Beyeler das Werk "You are the Weather" (1994-96) der amerikanischen Künstlerin Roni Horn (*1955). In den 100 Porträts einer jungen Frau begegnet man immer wieder dem gleichen Gesicht im Wasser einer isländischen Thermalquelle. Seit 1975 reist die Künstlerin regelmässig auf die nordische Vulkaninsel, deren einzigartige Landschaft für sie bis heute eine wichtige Quelle der Inspiration ist.

Der Löwe hat Hunger... Sammlungspräsentation

-
Wie der Löwe, der sich in Henri Rousseaus Gemälde hungrig auf die Antilope wirft, verspürt man auch in der Fondation Beyeler einen mächtigen Hunger – und zwar auf Kunst.

Erstmals trifft im Dialog zwischen Auguste Rodin und Hans Arp das bahnbrechende Schaffen des grossen Erneuerers der Bildhauerei des späten 19. Jh. auf das einflussreiche Werk eines Protagonisten der abstrakten Skulptur des 20. Jh. Das äusserst produktive Schaffen beider Bildhauer weist zahlreiche künstlerische Verwandtschaften und Bezugspunkte, aber auch Differenzen auf, welche die Gegenüberstellung ihrer unverkennbaren Werke zu einer besonders aufschlussreichen visuellen Erfahrung machen.

The exhibition shows works by women artists occupying prominent positions within the history of modern art from 1870 to the present day. It was at the beginning of this period that women artists in Europe and America were in a position to make their first significant incursions into the professional world of art. The exhibition centers around nine artists, united in their emphasis on the depiction of the human figure: on the portrait, in widely differing forms, and the self-portrait.
