During its recent revamp the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst Zürich sent its collection on tour and established connections with various contemporary art institutions around Europe, including the Kunsthalle Fridericianum Kassel, the Kunsthalle Krems and the Kunstmuseum Lichtenstein.
Many of the artists in the Migros Museum’s collection also feature in Museion’s collection, giving rise to an interesting cooperation. The exhibition presents a selection of works from both collections that explore some key themes of the art of the last century: from the legacy of minimalism and modernist architecture, to that of important personalities like Alberto Giacometti, Andy Warhol and Jeff Koons, to the role of the pedestal and the portrait genre, to name but a few.
