Collection on Display returns with Momentary Monuments, an exhibition of works that explore the significance and function of the monument broadly conceived for a wide-ranging discussion of memory and forgetting. The show unites art from our collection familiar to friends of the museum with rarely-seen pieces and new acquisitions that make their debut in Zurich.
