Exhibitions
Niko Pirosmani, Bear on a Moonlit Night, Oil on cardboard, 99.9 x 80 cm, The Collection of Shalva Amiranashvili Museum of Fine Arts of Georgia, Georgian National Museum, Tbilisi © Infinitart Foundation
As a highlight of the year, the Fondation Beyeler devotes an exhibition to the legendary Georgian painter Niko Pirosmani (1862–1918), as much an enigmatic free spirit as an influential precursor of modern art. Almost fanatically admired by art lovers and celebrated as a national treasure in his home country, Pirosmani is yet to be discovered by a wider Western European audience. Bringing together around 50 key works, the exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler is the most comprehensive international show ever devoted to Pirosmani. It is organised by the Fondation Beyeler in cooperation with the Georgian National Museum in Tbilisi and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk. Renowned contemporary artists Thea Djordjadze and Andro Wekua have been invited to offer their own contributions to the presentation of Pirosmani’s works in Basel.
