Join us today until 6 pm and tomorrow from 11 am to 4 pm @hotelrestauranthelvetia , Zürich for the #ImaginaryCollection : von Bartha x Leopold Weinberg ! –

The concept for ‘The Imaginary Collection’ was originally formed in 2017 following ‘Wunderkammer’, an ongoing project with von Bartha and WAC Art Initiative displaying a selection of artworks in the reception of Hotel Helvetia. Expanding upon this collaboration, the second edition of ‘The Imaginary Collection’ sees Weinberg as curator, selecting pieces from von Bartha’s existing inventory to display across the hotel: the ‘Wunderkammer’ (the reception), the outdoor/pool bar, the library and 5 rooms (which will be rented out to friends of the gallery over the period of two days). During this time, the hotel’s own collection in these spaces is temporarily removed. Usually compiled slowly over many years, this temporary collection is instead one of impulse and illusion, reflecting the curator’s feeling at one moment in time, before disappearing entirely. –
