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.

Current exhibition
Momentum – Helvetia Art Prize 2004 - 2024

For twenty years, the Helvetia Art Prize has been supporting young artists after they have completed their artistic training in Switzerland. The first exhibition in the new Helvetia Art Foyer is dedicated to the momentum: the impetus of creative development and the impulses of artistic processes. Artworks that are already part of the company's own collection encounter more recent works by former art prize winners from 2004 to 2024.

With works by:
Kathrin Affentranger, Josse Bailly, Bisso Yann Stéphane, Andriu Deplazes, Florian Germann, Aloïs Godinat, Dijan Kahrimanovic, Elisa Larvego, Kaspar Ludwig, Tiphanie Kim Mall, Luc Mattenberger, Thomas Moor, Anita Muçolli, Gina Proenza, STELLA and Jonas Van Holanda.

Duration of exhibition: 30 May to 29 August 2024 (except 1.8.2024)
Opening hours: Every Thursday from 4 to 8 pm – St.Alban-Anlage 26, Basel

Free admission
