Voyages en zigzag. La collection d’Erwin Oberwiler
July 1st, 2018–September 30, 2018
Since 1958, the architect Erwin Oberwiler ( 1935-2017 ) has been faithfully following Swiss artists and gallery owners, gathering a collection which shows his numerous aesthetic orientations as well as the vivacity and the diversity of the French-speaking and German-speaking artistic scenes.
He has collected works of geometric abstraction carrying the heritage of concrete art as well as works close to the Expressionist renewal budding in the early 1980s.
In collaboration with the MAMCO (Geneva), the Museum of Fine Arts now holds a part of Erwin Oberwiler’s collection and dedicates it to his memory.
One of Karim Noureldin’s early works on paper from the series “Evo”, is part of this collection and is currently exhibited at the Musée de la Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
