Innovative and Inspiring: Helvetia's Commitment to Swiss Art

Helvetia sees art as part of its corporate culture. As well as collecting Swiss art and promoting young artists by awarding its own art prize, the Basel-based company also has a public exhibition room.

Helvetia Art Foyer

The Helvetia Art Foyer, a publicly accessible exhibition space at the Basel headquarters, displays artworks from the collection in monographic, dialogic and thematic exhibitions. Selected artists are also invited to present solo exhibitions.

I like! – 80 years of the Helvetia art collection

What pleases whom and why? What connects us with the art, the work of art, the artist? What emotions, memories, associations does a work of art evoke?

We are looking back at 80 years of the Helvetia Art Collection, but not with a classic overview exhibition in the sense of a chronological review with the most art-historically relevant or financially valuable works from the collection holdings, but with many personal favourite works and a subjective view of them. The exhibition is accompanied by an audio guide with contributions from people from the worlds of art, culture, politics and business.

Duration of exhibition: extended until 28.03.2024
Opening hours: Every Thursday 4pm to 8pm – Steinengraben 25, Basel

Free admission
