Collection Presentation
Fondation Beyeler / Jun 13 – Sep 21, 2021
Riehen/Basel, Switzerland

The Fondation Beyeler’s current collection display is connected to Olafur Eliasson’s Life exhibition and explores the relationship between nature and culture in art through selected modern and contemporary art works depicting the human, animal and vegetal realms. Landscapes, still lifes and portraits uncover a dense web of relationships with the environment.

The exhibition brings together more than 100 works from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, including masterpieces and major groups of works by Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Ferdinand Hodler, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Alberto Giacometti, Louise Bourgeois, Mark Rothko, Sigmar Polke, Roni Horn, Peter Doig, Philippe Parreno, Tacita Dean and Wolfgang Tillmans as well as rarely displayed works and recent acquisitions. Using a vast range of media – painting, sculpture, photography, drawing and multimedia installations – the works on display chart the full scope and complexity of the relationship between nature and culture. This collection display, the most comprehensive in a long time, is the only one the Fondation Beyeler will stage this year. It offers a rare opportunity to (re)discover a significant part of the museum’s celebrated collection.
