Kunsthaus Zurich presents The Hubert Looser Collection exhibition

| June 12, 2013

Kunsthaus Zurich opens The Hubert Looser Collection an exhibition on view through 8 September 2013.

The Hubert Looser Collection, with its focus on Abstract Expressionism, Minimal Art and Arte Povera, moves to the Kunsthaus extension in 2017. By way of a preview, the Kunsthaus is exhibiting almost the entire collection in the context of its creation. It ranges from works by Pablo Picasso and Alberto Giacometti to Asian sculptures; there is also a glimpse into the private spaces of their owner.

Born in 1938 in Vilters (St. Gallen) and now living in Zurich, patron of the arts and former businessman Hubert Looser has, over a 40-year period, assembled a dazzling collection of art, the majority of it contemporary. In order to keep central groups of works and masterpieces together and make them accessible to the public on a long-term basis, in 2012 the Zürcher Kunstgesellschaft and the Fondation Hubert Looser reached an agreement under which the Kunsthaus Zürich can choose 70 works from the private collection and exhibit them as long-term loans in the Kunsthaus extension. With the presentation set to become a reality in 2017, the Kunsthaus is now organizing the first showing of the entire Looser Collection in Switzerland. www.kunsthaus.ch
