The Helvetia Art Foyer, a publicly accessible exhibition space at the insurer's head office in Basel, is an art space in which works from the collection are presented in solo shows, in dialogue, or in group exhibitions on a specific theme. Selected artists are also invited to stage solo shows there.
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: 30.11.2023 - 29.02.2024
Opening hours: Every Thursday 4pm to 8pm - Steinengraben 25, Basel
