Devenir un artiste concret, Camille Graeser

Trained at the Royal School of Applied Arts in Stuttgart, Camille Graeser (1892-1980) began a career as an architect and graphic designer in 1917. Shortly thereafter, he became interested in pictorial research, favouring the international avant-garde.

Forced to leave Nazi Germany in 1933, Camille Graeser moved to Zurich and devoted himself to painting. Together with Max Bill, Richard Paul Lohse and Verena Loewensberg, he became one of the most important representatives of concrete art in Switzerland.

The exhibitions will focus on the Swiss artist’s work as a designer (decorations and furniture of the 1920s and 1930s) and on paintings, reliefs and sculptures made in the late 1930s.

Head Space, Davide Bertocchi

Residency report "Art & Worlds of work", a device of the Ministry of Culture.

As part of this program, Davide Bertocchi developed a set of works specific to this experience. The title of the exhibition, Head Space, refers directly to the universe of the associated company Azur Fragrances: perfumery. This term refers to a process that allows the extraction of the smell of flowers and rare plants and then to analyze them in order to reconstitute them. Other chemical processes have particularly interested the artist: a way to make the invisible visible.

Filiations 2, dialogue with the Albers-Honegger Donation

Ten years after the first edition, Filiations 2 proposes to a new generation of artists to dialogue with certain "tutelary" figures of the collection in the spaces of the donation. These choices are enriched by their own work so that a dialogue is established beyond the barriers of time and space. The artists invited to participate in this project share specific links with the history of abstraction and its ramifications.

Artists: Karina Bisch, Gabrielle Conilh de Beyssac, Fabien Gharbi, Camila Oliveira Fairclough, Hugo Pernet, Gilles Pourtier, Linda Sanchez, Hugo Schüwer Boss, Xavier Theunis

As well as a selection of artists from the Albers-Honegger Collection: John Armleder, Cécile Bart, Max Bill, Marcelle Cahn, Eduardo Chillida, Sonia Delaunay, Herman de Vries, Piero Dorazio, Christoph Haerle, Gottfried Honegger, Shirley Jaffe, Tatiana Loguine, Olivier Mosset, Aurelie Nemours, Adrian Schiess, Sean Scully, Kimber Smith, Franz Erhard Walther...
