VISUAL ARTS - Exhibition


MASI will host a major monographic exhibition dedicated to Wolfgang Laib, a German artist whose work in the contemporary artistic scene stands out for its essentialness, clarity, and depth of thought. The exhibition project, planned in close collaboration with the artist himself, comprises 50 works, including sculptures, photographs, drawings, and installations that explore all the areas of his creative universe.

The works are exhibited on a rotating yearly basis, and the way they are mounted is aimed at diversifying the approaches to interpretation each time, so that visitors can enjoy the full wealth and variety of the museum’s permanent collection. Since the nineteenth century the methods of displaying and classifying art collections have been subject to constant change, proof of how the viewing and interpretation of a work are unequivocally influenced by cultural and historical factors. From colored walls completely covered by “painting galleries”, to a chronological arrangement by schools and movements, to room after room of rigorously monographic criteria, the methods used are never definitive nor are they irreversible.

The collection
Wolfgang Laib

The opening of a new venue at the LAC has given the Museo d’arte della Svizzera italiana the chance to exhibit its own permanent collection in a continuing fashion. Being able to present both the collection and the exhibitions at the same time means having the opportunity to show the binding relationship between the museum’s artistic holdings and the various temporary exhibitions.
