Kunsthalle Zurich announces opening date in new permanent home in the Lowenbrau art complex
The space occupied by the Kunsthalle Zürich has been completely redeveloped.
ZURICH.- The Kunsthalle Zürich will re-open to the public in its new permanent home in the Löwenbräu art complex in Zurich on 10 June 2012 with the special exhibition, Looking Back for the Future.

Since it was founded in 1985, the Kunsthalle Zürich has established itself as one of Europe’s most influential art institutions, helping to define the direction of contemporary art. Having moved to a series of different venues in its early years, the Kunsthalle has been based in the Löwenbräu art complex since 1996.

The complex, which also houses the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst and a number of international galleries, has undergone a major renovation and redevelopment. The architects of the project are Gigon/Guyer Architekten, best known for the Kirchner Museum, Davos (1992), the Sports Centre, Davos (1996) and the Museum Liner, Appenzell (1996).

The space occupied by the Kunsthalle Zürich has been completely redeveloped. An intermediate floor has been added to two of the existing exhibition galleries to provide space for a public library, offices, meeting rooms, an archive and workshops. A white cube on top of the building creates a supplementary floor and provides a marker to draw attention to the Kunsthalle Zürich’s presence in the complex.

The Stiftung Kunsthalle Zürich was established in 1993 following a generous endowment by Annette Bühler. The current President of the foundation board, Maja Hoffmann, has greatly extended the significance and scope of the Stiftung Kunsthalle Zürich internationally.

Beatrix Ruf, Director of the Kunsthalle Zürich, said: “I am absolutely delighted that we will be opening our new space in Löwenbräu art complex in June. It promises to give the Kunsthalle Zürich an exciting future and will enable us to extend our programme and improve our facilities for the benefit of our visitors.”
