The Objectif gare event took place in Lausanne from 5 to 14 June 2015. Prefiguring their future unification on the site of the former CFF locomotive sheds just a stone’s throw from the railway station, the mcb-a, the mudac and the Musée de l’Elysée decided to offer visitors an artistic interpretation of 21 different phases leading to the future PLATEFORME 10 site. The Fondation Toms Pauli and the Fondation Félix Vallotton, which will both be joining the new mcb-a, were closely associated with this event, which also featured the art collection of the Banque Cantonale Vaudoise, invited for the occasion.
Exhibitions, installations, urban interventions, performances as well as numerous activities such as drawing workshops, cultural mediation, photography or design workshops and exhibitions, free visits, musical proposals and film evenings were organized. With nearly 30,000 visitors, the event attracted and mobilized a large audience.
