19 MAY UNTIL 11 AUGUST 2024
For the first time in the Fondation Beyeler’s more than 25-year history, the entire museum and its surrounding park will be transformed into the site of an experimental presentation of contemporary art. With contributions by Michael Armitage, Federico Campagna, Ian Cheng, Marlene Dumas, Frida Escobedo, Peter Fischli, Cyprien Gaillard with Victor Man, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Wade Guyton, Carsten Höller with Adam Haar, Pierre Huyghe, Arthur Jafa, Koo Jeong A, Dozie Kanu, Cildo Meireles, Fujiko Nakaya, Precious Okoyomon, Philippe Parreno, Rachel Rose, Tino Sehgal, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Ramdane Touhami und Adrián Villar Rojas. The Summer Show is conceived as a “living organism” that changes and transforms throughout its duration. Connections and interrelationships between individual works are developed in close dialogue with the artists. This exchange also extends to works from the in-house collection, which are an integral part of the project. While a number of the paintings, sculptures, films, installations, and performances were created site-specifically, others are adapted versions of existing works. The exhibition is conceived by a team composed of artists Precious Okoyomon and Philippe Parreno; Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director of the Serpentine Galleries, London; Sam Keller, Mouna Mekouar and Isabela Mora, Fondation Beyeler.
