"Meret Oppenheim: My exhibition" is the first major transatlantic retrospective devoted to the artist that covers all the phases of her work comprehensively. In the course of her long career Oppenheim produced a constantly surprising and unconventional body of work that includes object works, paintings and drawings as well as sculptures in the public space and poems. ‘Freedom is not given to you,’ she said in 1975, ‘you have to take it.’ The exhibition shows Oppenheim’s radically open artistic concept and her connections with the lively art scenes in Paris, Basel and Bern in the various phases of her life.
The exhibition is organised in collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Menil Collection in Houston. Bern is the first and only stop of the travelling exhibition in Europe.
