Exhibition — Splendore – joie, joie, joie…

Fondation Fernet-Branca
Ongoing Event
Sat., 13 April until Sun., 07 July

On April 12, 2024, the Fondation Fernet-Branca contemporary art space in Alsace will reopen its doors to the public after some renovations. The old Fernet-Branca distillery warehouse in St. Louis, on the border with Basel, was shut down in 2000. In 2004, architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte conceived a beautiful, 2300 m2 exhibition space, which has since hosted retrospectives of well-known artists such as Lee Ufan, Charles Pollock, and many others. The museum has been managed by the Fondation Fernet-Branca since 2012.
As part of the reopening, the Fondation is presenting the exhibition "Splendore—joie, joie, joie…" that was curated by Richard Neyroud. Joy (French: la joie)—at once protective, rebellious, and liberating—is at the heart of this exhibition, which brings together artists who think of night, dreams, and states of semi-consciousness between (re)awakening and sleep as possible extensions of reality, spearheads, or predictive tools. This exhibition will include works by Benedikt Bock, Leolie Greet, Tenki Hiramatsu, Marlijn Karsten, Geneviève Morin, Leontios Toumpouris, and Noémie Vidonne.
There will be a vernissage of this exhibit on Saturday April 12 at 19:00; all are welcome.
