Information

A new era in the history of Kunstmuseum Basel is about to begin: a new extension has risen across the street from the museum’s main building, to which it is connected by an underground passage. The new gallery building, which will accommodate special exhibitions as well as presentations of art from our collections, will be inaugurated with a two-day celebration in mid-April (4/17–18), when we will also reopen the thoroughly renovated main building. The Kunstmuseum Basel will then present art at no fewer than three venues: the Kunstmuseum Basel | Gegenwart, the Kunstmuseum Basel | main building and the Kunstmuseum Basel | new building.

Masterworks from the Kunstmuseum Basel are currently on view in the exhibition Cézanne to Richter at the Kunstmuseum Basel | Gegenwart (through February 21), which also features the exhibitions Cy Twombly. Painting and Sculpture (through March 13) and Reinhard Mucha (opens March 19). Admission to the museum will be free until the inauguration of the enlarged Kunstmuseum Basel.

Moreover, central pieces from the Kunstmuseum Basel’s treasures are on display in Holbein. Cranach. Grünewald, an exhibition at the Museum der Kulturen Basel (through February 28).

On Sunday, April 17, and Monday, April 18, as we celebrate the start of a new era, the public will enjoy free admission to all three venues, including the new special exhibition Sculpture on the Move 1946–2016 and the exhibition Barnett Newman—Drawings and Prints.
