PLATEFORME 10: HIGHLIGHTS FROM A VISIT TO LAUSANNE’S NEW ARTS DISTRICT

Andy meets Warhol recently visited “Plateforme 10”, the new arts district of the city of Lausanne. The platform which is only a five minutes walk from the train station of Lausanne brings together the Cantonal Fine Arts Museum and from 2022, the Elysée Museum and the Museum of Design and Contemporary Arts is a unique venue dedicated to culture.

Remarkable: the new open spaces created give way to potentially showing great large scale art installations in the near future. In addition, exhibiting fine art, photography, design, textile arts all under one roof (including great architecture by EBV – Estudio Barozzi/Veiga architects and Aires Mateus) is certainly worth of a visit!

P.S. : Don’t miss Christian Marclay’s  “Unpacking” installation, featuring images of 2’500 objects from from mudac archives.
