Atlas. A Cartography of Donation
5.10.2019 — 12.1.2020
In honour of the long-awaited opportunity for a permanent display of the canton’s rich art collections, the inaugural exhibition Atlas. A Cartography of Donation presents the museum’s holdings across the MCBA’s almost 3,200 square metres of exhibition space.
The exceptional exhibition draws up MCBA’s own atlas, sparking a dialogue between works from different generations and artistic schools. Each space has its own theme, from music, forests, and flux, to a map of the heart, a cartography of pain, and an exploration of the color black, offering one possible reading of the museum’s collections to visitors encountering the new exhibition spaces for the first time.
