Upcoming events

Andy Warhol, “The Time Capsules”

From 4th September until 15th November ’21

From the 4st September to 15st of November Foundation Majid hosts Andy Warhol, International Artist and undisputed genius of Pop Art

His artistic activity includes many works that he produced in series, and repetition was the method of his success. His art, which brought the shelves of a supermarket into a museum or exhibition, was a not too veiled provocation. According to one of the greatest exponents of pop art, art had to be “consumed” like any other commercial product.

Warhol, an infinite man and artist, managed to communicate the tragic nature of existence with its echo of pain, a point of fracture and abandonment corresponding to a moment of living.

The exhibition is a personal experience that highlights the human condition as voluntary obedience to the TIME OF THE CLOCK and the ability of an artist, of talent, to be able to get out of it through painting, that knowledge of the soul that is not knowledge.

Athos Faccincani, Racconti di Luce

From 1th August until 31th August 2021

Salvador Dalí The Divine Comedy

From the 4th of November until the 28st March 2021

The Majid Foundation, in collaboration with Art Events, presents, for the first time in Switzerland, the Divine Comedy illustrated by Salvador Dalí.

In 1950, to celebrate the 700th anniversary of Dante Alighieri’s birth, the Italian government commissioned Dalì to illustrate a special edition of the Divine Comedy.
100 watercolor woodcuts, 33 watercolors each for Hell, Purgatory and Paradise, were born plus an introduction, an original and unique expression of the imagination of the most famous and visionary representative of Surrealism.

Dalì works by placing at the center of each table a character or a particularly significant event of the song and the representation he makes of it is dreamlike and irreverent: Hell, Purgatory and Paradise emerge suspended between dream and reality, in a single masterpiece.

The journey beyond Dante’s world is therefore interpreted in a metaphysical and psychological key, masterfully mixing the deepest sense of the Comedy with the artistic sense of Salvador Dalì.

The Majid Foundation is honored to exhibit the complete collection of the great master’s illustrations to the Swiss public, while also paying homage to the great poet Dante Alighieri.
