Xavier Noiret-Thomé at Appenzell Art Museum
UNERKANNT – BEKANNT
Art collections arise for many reasons, one of the most distinguished is when enthusiasm for art is combined with communication and promotion. Ideally, the collaboration with living artists, with the art market and, of course, with the public results in an organically grown collection that not only preserves the wealth of experience and commitment of several decades of love for art, but carries it on.The exhibition Unrecognized - Known. In a show specially composed for the 10 cabinets of the Art Museum Appenzell, contemporary art from a collection in Eastern Switzerland presents an art collection that has been lived, developed and amalgamated by a collector for over 40 years.The paintings, sculptures, objects, graphics by Ernesto Baltiswiler, Mark Francis, Bernard Frize, Rolf Iseli, Anne Marie Jehle, Imi Knoebel, Xavier Noiret-Thomé, Boris Nieslony, Jürgen Partenheimer, Markus Raetz, Liddy Scheffknecht, Roman Signer, Bernard Tagwerker, Franz Erhard Walther, Isolde Wawrin, Franz West, Stephen Westfall, Kelly Wood, Erwin Wurm, Daniel Zimmermann & Beat Zoderer develop an extraordinary aesthetic presence in the special architecture of the Appenzell Art Museum.
