MASI Palazzo RealiExhibitions

In March 2020, the Museo d’arte della Svizzera italiana will host a major exhibition dedicated to German photographer Harry Shunk and Hungarian photographer János Kender. In the 1950s Shunk and Kender began a fruitful and durable collaboration, documenting openings, biennials and artists working in their studios or during public performances, among which Yves Klein and Jean Tinguely, Niki de Saint Phalle and Eva Aeppli, Jean Fautrier and Daniel Spoerri, Andy Warhol and his entourage, Yayoi Kusama and Trisha Brown. The exhibition, which reaches Lugano after being presented at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, draws from over ten thousand original prints, donated to the Parisian museum in 2008 by the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, which collected and protected this extraordinary photographic collection.
