International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, Espace Focus

Abakan rouge III, the enigmatic woven sculpture by Magdalena Abakanowicz (1930-2017), will be on view until spring 2022 at Espace Focus, International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum. The loan was requested by the Museum in the context of their annual theme, “Gender & Diversity”.

The Fondation Toms Pauli has moved to PLATEFORME 10, the new arts discrict in Lausanne.

In 2020, after 20 years in the heart of the city, the Fondation Toms Pauli relocated to the new building that houses the Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts de Lausanne (MCBA), designed by the architects Barozzi and Veiga. Our administrative offices have been moved there as well as the cantonal collections of 16th- 20th-century tapestries, our specialised library and the artistic archives of the International Centre of Ancient and Modern Tapestries (CITAM).

The public will have the chance to discover the collections preserved and cared for by the Fondation at temporary exhibitions organised at the MCBA or abroad. Apart from these specific events, the works will not be on view in the Museum’s permanent exhibition rooms.

Our first, not-to-be-missed event

In the summer of 2023, the Fondation will be presenting an exhibition featuring the works from Magdalena Abakanowicz - in partnership with Tate Modern, London - and Elsi Giauque, two artists that marked the history of Fiber Art in the second half of the 20th century.
