Collecting for Tomorrow
21 Mar 2015 - 10 Jan 2016
new works at Museion
21 March 2015 – 10 January 2016
The exhibition presents works that have joined Museion’s collection in the last seven years, as acquisitions, donations or long-term loans. They all tie in with the research themes pursued by the museum, such as the new directions in sculpture, and the exhibition brings to light the fact that traditional artistic categories no longer always exist separately from one another. There is a special section devoted to artist’s books and graphic art, which interface with some of the works in the collection. UNESCO has proclaimed the year 2015 as the International Year of Light, therefore a large part of the exhibition is dedicated to a selection of light art works.
