WINTER 2021/22 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 17 April 2022, you can visit the exhibition "Breath of Life", where the Fondation Opale has accepted the challenge to exhibit the sound of the didgeridoo, the emblematic instrument of Aboriginal Australia, as well as contemporary works from Arnhem Land, in spaces of visual and sonic vibration.
