Philip Guston. Singularities

7 June – 7 September 2024
Zurich, Limmatstrasse

Explore Philip Guston’s late figurative works on the second floor of our Limmatstrasse gallery. Curated in collaboration with Musa Mayer, the artist’s daughter and president of The Guston Foundation, the exhibition features well-known paintings alongside never-before exhibited works.


Nairy Baghramian. Modèle vivant (Se ployant)

7 June – 7 September 2024
Zurich, Limmatstrasse

Discover eight new sculptures by Nairy Baghramian under the title ‘Modèle vivant (Se ployant).’ Making reference to the tradition of drawing, painting or sculpting from a live model, as indicated by the series’ title, the Berlin-based artist’s abstract works, as per usual in her practice, grant only approximations of and allusions to the human gestalt.

Join us for the opening reception of both exhibitions on Saturday 8 June, 6 – 8 pm.
