In 2018, the museums of Alsace are pulling out all the stops to exhibit internationally renowned artists. During a seminar or a conference in Colmar, Strasbourg or Mulhouse, you’ll want to add a recreational break to your programme. How about offering a cultural activity?
At the Unterlinden Museum
Ever since it reopened in 2016, the Unterlinden Museum has been causing quite a stir. Thanks to programming that rivals the greatest cultural institutions, featuring such artists as Otto Dix and Alexandre Rodtchenko, the museum, located right at the very centre of picturesque Colmar, is a must-see for all of your employees who are enthusiasts of art, architecture and design.
Starting on 6 June 2018, works by one of the most well-known artists of the revival of German figurative painting will be on display at the museum: to celebrate his 80th birthday, Georg Baselitz has chosen the Unterlinden Museum! On display until 29 October 2018.
At the Strasbourg Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MAMCS)
The MAMCS has been invigorating the cultural life of the European capital for 20 years already. To celebrate, throughout the year in 2018, the museum is offering surprising, unexpected programming, punctuated with happenings outside the museum’s walls.
As a highlight of the programming, the MAMCS has announced an all-new collaboration with Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos. The visual artist, who had an exhibition at the Palace of Versailles in 2012, is considered by art critics to be a star of contemporary art. Her fabric artwork, designed specifically for the anniversary of the MAMCS, represents a fine opportunity to take the plunge and discover this artist.
At La Chambre, a photography exhibition and education space
At the heart of La Krutenau, Strasbourg’s trendy district, La Chambre is a space devoted entirely to photography. The constantly changing programming focuses mainly on young international photographers. However, every year, the gallery features a historical exhibition, thus providing an opportunity to learn more about the history of the world and our societies.
Starting on 2 March 2018, La Chambre is exhibiting the work of Stephens Shames. This photographer was an eyewitness to the Black Panthers movement in the United States. Learn about this struggle through the photos of this exhibition, until 15 April 2018.
At the Museum of Printed Textiles (MISE)
Located close to the train station in Mulhouse, the MISE is a gem presenting a rich heritage collection of textiles. In tribute to the museum, the Taschen publishing house is bringing out an art book, to end 2017 with brio.
Constantly reinventing itself to attract a broad audience, the MISE is offering a new exhibition of its collections called “Bal(l)ade”, until 30 September 2018. This show was designed by André Manoukian in the form of a musical stroll, accompanied by a new soundtrack showcasing the textiles on display.
