Sun., 21 May until Sun., 17 September

The Fondation Beyeler will devote a large solo exhibition to internationally acclaimed Colombian artist Doris Salcedo (*1958), featuring key works from the different phases of her career. It will be Salcedo’s first museum exhibition in Switzerland. In her objects, sculptures, and site-specific interventions, she explores the ever-repeating cycle of violence, outrage, grief, remembrance, and oblivion. Salcedo ranks among the most important artists of our time. Her large-scale installation “Palimpsest” (2013-2017), which is concerned with the fate of refugees and migrants who have drowned in the Mediterranean or the Atlantic, has been on view at the Fondation Beyeler since October 9, 2022 and will remain on display until the end of this exhibition.
