Friday Beyeler

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.

The museum is open on Fridays from 6–9 p.m.


17 May 9 August* 2024

The Friday Beyeler evenings during the summer period are all about the current exhibition. This experimental presentation of contemporary art is conceived as a "living organism" that changes and transforms throughout its duration. A variety of paintings, sculptures, films, installations and performances, which are created site-specifically for the exhibition, provide a thematic impulse for the evening and thus offer the opportunity for undisturbed enjoyment of art into the evening hours.

Rirkrit Tiravanija transforms the terrace into a place for encounters and dialogue. In his ‘Old smokey lounge’, visitors are invited to linger over baos and boulevardiers.

The restaurant invites you to enjoy an aperitif and delicious sharing dishes with extended opening hours until 10 p.m.

*Exceptionally, there will be no Friday Beyeler on 14 June.
