Fondation Beyeler. Die Sammlung
The Fondation Beyeler Collection
The Fondation Beyeler this year celebrates its 25th anniversary with the most comprehensive exhibition of works from its collection to date. Taking up almost the entire exhibition space of the museum, it will feature approximately 100 works – from classics of modern art to recent acquisitions of contemporary art. Major works by Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne, Henri Rousseau, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Alberto Giacometti, Mark Rothko, Andy Warhol, Francis Bacon and Louise Bourgeois will be set in relation to contemporary positions by Marlene Dumas, Anselm Kiefer, Roni Horn, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Tacita Dean, Rachel Whiteread, and others. The exhibition thus provides a unique opportunity to experience the collection of the Fondation Beyeler in its depth and impressive quality. The anniversary exhibition will be further enriched by the integration of several hyperrealist sculptures by American artist Duane Hanson. This “exhibition within the exhibition” opens up surprising perspectives on the Fondation Beyeler’s artworks, architecture, staff and visitors.
