Doris Salcedo | 21.5.23 – 17.9.23
The Fondation Beyeler is the first museum in Switzerland to devote a comprehensive solo exhibition to the Colombian artist Doris Salcedo (*1958), presenting eight major series of works from different periods of her career.
THE MIND’S EYE. Images of Nature from Monet to Nkanga | 10.6. – 27.8.2023
The collection display focuses on artists’ engagement with nature – from Impressionism to the current day. The exhibition brings together more than 40 works. In parallel, the Fondation Beyeler will show works by Robert Ryman from the Daros Collection.
Basquiat. The Modena Paintings | 11.6. – 27.8.2023
In the summer of 1982, Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960–1988) painted eight large-format works for one of his first solo shows, supposed to go on view at a gallery in Modena, Italy. However, the project was cancelled before the show’s opening and the paintings were never shown together. More than forty years later, the Fondation Beyeler for the first time brings together these masterpieces, now held in collections in the United States, Asia and Switzerland.
Niko Pirosmani | 17.9.23 – 28.1.2024
Georgian artist Niko Pirosmani (1862–1918) is a legend: (for now) unknown to many, he is almost fanatically revered by others. As the exhibition will show, Pirosmani was an outstanding exponent of early modern art.

"24 Stops" – Rehberger-Weg
The Rehberger-Weg runs approximately 5 kilometers and joins two countries, two communities, two cultural institutions – and countless stories. It runs between Riehen and Weil am Rhein, between the Fondation Beyeler and the Vitra Campus. Along the “24 Stops,” 24 milestones created by artist Tobias Rehberger (b.1966), you can explore the diverse natural and cultural landscape. The Rehberger-Weg provides the opportunity to get to know the history and stories of the area and its people while getting out into nature.
The Fondation Beyeler's main goal is to bring art and viewer together. In our guided tours and workshops, we do not only share knowledge about artists, works, and epochs. We create above all a space in which to deepen observations and exchange different views, perceptions, thoughts, and feelings.
Film and Game "Das Dingsda im Museum"
The new museum game invites children and adults to discover the works of art based on questions in a playful way and in exchange with each other. It can be borrowed free of charge from the Art Shop of the Fondation Beyeler for your museum visit and is suitable for every exhibition. Only avaible in German.
