New donations and "Balthus Unfinished" on the mcb-a construction site
The dates that will mark the opening of mcb-a are now known. Just like the first stone of the building "One museum, two museums" which will house the Musée de l'Elysée and the mudac. The countdown is therefore launched for PLATEFORME 10. The enthusiasm for this project recently resulted in a dation of six works from Jean-Claude Givel's collection, as well as a new donation of 2 million Swiss francs from Audemars Piguet. Anticipating the opening of the mcb-a in its new walls, a new exhibition, "Balthus Unfinished", will take place on the museum's construction site in the summer of 2018. In the immediate future, a symposium on digital challenges for museums will be held at the end of this month in Lausanne.
