«Friday Beyeler» - Every End Brings New Beginnings
Like art, which is always exploring new avenues, on this winter evening we shall be contemplating new beginnings of all kinds. Be it the advent of a new season, the discovery of new interests or the kindling of a new passion—in every new beginning there dwells the magic of a promise that has yet to be redeemed. Which is why the final “Friday Beyeler” this year is happily dedicated not to endings, but to the subject of beginnings.
The “Friday Beyeler” event series takes place on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Fondation Beyeler and welcomes all friends of the arts and inspiring encounters to the museum. From 16 September to 16 December 2022, the exhibitions, the park and the restaurant of the Fondation Beyeler will be open until 10 p.m. every Friday. In addition, under the title “I Hear a New World - 14 Miaows of the Future”, students and artists who teach at the Institute of Art Gender Nature at FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel will transform the museum foyer into a creative platform for contemporary art, featuring live performances, films, talks, music, poetry and dance.
The “Friday Beyeler” events are included in the museum admission. The performances are ongoing and can be joined at any time.
