Art around Lake Geneva

We have put together a selection of art exhibitions worth your time, around Lake Geneva. If you are lazy, worry not, we propose to you 2 online exhibitions at Kunstmatrix & The Louvre Museum.


Calder, Soulages, Vasarely… / Abstractions plurielles (1950-1980)
From March until November 21st 2021
Musée d’Art de Pully

Centered on the plural forms that abstraction took during this period, the exhibition shows the main trends: lyrical and gestural abstraction by Georges Mathieu or Hans Hartung, abstract expressionism by Pierre Soulages or Sam Francis, geometric abstraction by Victor Vasarely or François Morellet, or even minimal painting by Martin Barré, a kinetic sculpture by Jean Tinguely or a monumental mobile by Alexandre Calder. As for the Supports / Surfaces movement, which questions what traditional pictorial really means, it marks both a conclusion to this period of intense experimentation and the beginning of an adventure that continues today.
