This exhibition on contemporary large-format drawing brings together some thirty artists who work extensively in the medium. What does it mean for an artist to draw on a large scale – in situ, on paper, or indeed on other supports – and explore the limits of their creativity? How does a visitor feel when confronted with the drawing’s monumentality, far removed from the discreet intimacy of a sketch? The exhibition examines the status of drawing today and the potential that is unleashed when it assumes uncommon dimensions.

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.
