The Pierre Arnaud Foundation — named after the Swiss collector — was founded by daughter and son-in-law, Sylvie and Daniel Salzmann, to perpetuate his memory.

In 2012, the Foundation entrusted Studio Adrien Gardère and his long-term partner, on-situ, in charge of both mediation and multimedia, with the design of its first six exhibitions. These were conceived by the Studio and on-situ, as a “collection” of scenographic and multimedia installations. For the Foundation, the Studio developed a tailor-made flexible exhibition system of cases and self-standing walls which allows reconfiguring the spaces for each new exhibition. 

 

The winter exhibitions highlighted the major pictorial trends that marked the history of western art between 1850 and 1950, establishing a parallel between Swiss and Western painters.
The summer exhibitions confronted the Indigenous arts and with the great artistic currents of the 20th-century.

 

Romanticism - Melancholy of Stones is the Foundation's third winter exhibition.
