Friday Beyeler

From March 1, 2024 every Friday, 6–10 p.m.


«Friday Beyeler» is back: For its current season of «Friday Beyeler», the Fondation Beyeler presents itself as a vibrant and inspiring space for new encounters. The evening programme is curated in collaboration with figures and collectives who promote cultural and interdisciplinary dialogue. Friday evenings at the Fondation Beyeler offer visitors the opportunity to meet and engage with new people – creating a space for shared experiences and discovery.

A series of different hosts from the world of art and culture set the tone and theme for the evenings, while the current exhibitions are available to explore at leisure, and the restaurant stays open late for an aperitif or evening meal.
