Musée Rath (MAH)

In keeping with the MAH programme, Musée Rath exhibitions are conceived in close connection with its collection. This new presentation was therefore developed around a major work, Untitled by Mario Merz, created in Geneva in 1985 and donated by the artist to the MAH the following year.

Made up of nine installations, the exhibition uniquely emphasizes the strong connection between the two artists. For the first time, the public will discover a series of installations that they conceived together. More than collaborations, these can be seen as a four-handed self-portrait. For Marisa, art was a means of breaking the lock between reality and our intimate imagination. As for Mario, he never ceased to remind us of the fragility of our inscription in nature. This message still has a poetic impact today that is made cruel by current events.
