WINTER 2020/21 PRESSKIT - CULTURE

CULTURE - HIDDEN TREASURES AWAIT

Crans-Montana is a destination full of history and popular Valais traditions that travellers can discover at the Grand-Lens museum as well as the Colombire Ecomuseum. All cultural tastes are catered for, enjoyed and shared here. Examples of our cultural diversity include: a museum of model trains for all the family; the Opale Foundation in Lens, that brings together Swiss and international artists; the Vision Art Festival, which has helped to draw urban art away from large cities and into the heart of the Alps; and of course, the five galleries of Crans-Montana. Music from popular and classical through to electro can also be heard at numerous concerts, events and festivals throughout the year.

Fondation Opale

Between Aboriginal and Contemporary Art

Through exhibitions, workshops, gatherings and publications, the Fondation Opale intends to install a permanent dialogue between Aboriginal art and contemporary art. Launched in 2019, the ”Before Time Began” exhibition truly launched the Foundation’s artistic project, with works from the origins of contemporary Aboriginal art to modern time.

 

Until 4 April 2021, Fondation Opale presents “Résonances”, its new exhibition. Bringing together 50 contemporary Aboriginal and international artists, this five-chapter tour explores the fundamental theme of the human's place in the universe through their works.
