Collection on Display: John Armleder, Stefan Burger, Valentin Carron, Edward Krasiński, Manfred Pernice


4. May 2013  – 18. August 2013

Featuring artworks by:
John Armleder   Stefan Burger   Valentin Carron   Edward Krasinski   Manfred Pernice

"Collection on Display" presents selected works from the collection of the Migros Museum of Contemporary Art. The current presentation from the collection continues the cycle on contemporary sculptural practice we launched last year. The works by John Armleder, Stefan Burger, Valentin Carron, Edward Krasiński, and Manfred Pernice on display in the third and final chapter of the exhibition are exemplary of today's creative production in sculptural art. We are delighted to present a series of works by Valentin Carron - who represents Switzerland at this year's Venice Biennale - that has never been on display at the Migros Museum of Contemporary Art. Also shown for the first time are newly acquired works by John Armleder, Edward Krasiński and Manfred Pernice.
