ABGESAGT – mittwoch-matinee: Rodin/Arp

17 March 2021 | 10.00 AM - 12.00 PM

Die mittwoch-matinee in der Fondation Beyeler lädt Sie ein, die erstmals in einem Dialog präsentierten Werke von Auguste Rodin (1840–1917) und Hans Arp (1886–1966) kennenzulernen. Das äusserst produktive Schaffen beider Bildhauer weist zahlreiche künstlerische Verwandtschaften und Bezugspunkte, aber auch Unterschiede auf, welche die Gegenüberstellung ihrer Werke zu einer besonders aufschlussreichen visuellen Erfahrung machen.

Preis: CHF 10.– (inkl. Museumseintritt)
Die Teilnehmerzahl ist beschränkt. Tickets können online im Vorverkauf oder gleichentags an der Museumskasse bezogen werden.
