In follow up to Architecture Today’s drawing preview of the Kunsthalle, Zürich, in February, these are the latest images of the building by Gigon/ Guyer Architekten. The contemporary art gallery is briefly open for a public preview week until 17 June before the official opening on 31 August.
The Löwenbräu art complex, which also houses the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst and a number of international leading galleries, has undergone a major renovation and redevelopment.
To celebrate the re-opening of the Kunsthalle Zürich, on 28 June there will be a benefit auction of works by leading artists who have exhibited at the museum since its founding in 1985. The auction will take place at Christie’s in London, with artists including Fischli and Weiss, Thomas Demand, Sarah Lucas, Elmgreen and Dragset, Thomas Ruff, Gabriel Orozco and Doug Aitken. Prior to the auction, the works will be on display during the preview week at the Kunsthalle Zürich in its inaugural exhibition, Looking Back for the Future.
