Director’s Welcome

 

Dear Colleagues,

 

It is with great pleasure that we are presenting our programme for 2017. As customary, this offers a great opportunity to look forward to many exciting exhibition projects.

 

Please allow us to direct your attention especially to our latest exhibition ‘New Museums: Intentions, Expectations, Challenges’ – which takes place at the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire, Geneva, Switzerland from May 11, 2017 until August 20, 2017.

The past decade of both economic crises in Europe and North America, as well as the extraordinary growth of wealth in Asian countries has certainly influenced and changed the role of and demands towards art museums worldwide. Our exhibition seeks to explore contemporary practices in museum architecture and how museum architecture reflects on these new challenges for museums.

We are delighted to continue our collaboration with the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Reims who has allowed us to present an exquisite selection from their collection in the exhibition ‘Towards Impressionism: Landscape Painting from Corot to Monet’ which will be displayed in the Cornell Fine Arts Museum, Rollins College, Winter Park, FL, USA, January 20 – April 8, 2018 and the Frye Art Museum, Seattle, WA, USA, May 05, 2018 – July 29, 2018.

Another exciting project which we will develop further, is the exhibition on ‘E. L. Kirchner’s Imaginary Travels’ created and organised in collaboration with the Kirchner Museum Davos. It will be exhibited in Bonn at the Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, from November 15, 2018 – February 17, 2019.

With these partnerships we have successfully advanced our exhibition programme and extended our range of curatorial disciplines.

We hope you enjoy our upcoming exhibitions and we look forward to collaborating with you in the future.

 

Sincerely,

 

Suzanne Greub
