An ideal collector
Since 2005, thanks to the generosity of Edmond Bourqui and his successive donations, the City of Vevey’s collections have been enriched with almost 300 prints. An enlightened amateur, it was in the course of his encounters with a variety of artists, printers and gallery owners that he brought together this eclectic corpus. Committed to promoting the art of printmaking, this ‘ideal collector’made a point of supporting the creative work of cultural actors through his choice of acquisitions, thus acting as a benefactor.

The exhibition gives pride of place to contemporary printmaking, and reflects the view of the collector in search of inspirational works. While traditional engraving techniques share the limelight with contemporary experiments using the medium, the figurative subjects dialogue with geometric motifs.

The Musée Jenisch Vevey and the Montreux Jazz Artists Foundation have joined forces to offer a unique experience where the visual arts meet music and weave a unique dialogue with it.

ART&SONS invites visitors to take their mobile phones and headphones with them to discover a selection of works shown in the permanent collection of paintings or in temporary exhibitions in a unique way. The works in question are marked with a QR code that can be scanned to start the music.

The series of dialogues are chosen by Stéphanie-Aloysia Moretti, art historian and artistic director of the Montreux Jazz Artists Foundation, to whom the Musée Jenisch Vevey has given carte blanche for the realisation of this project.
