The Mirabaud banking and financial group has announced a new partnership with the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The collaboration will be initiated by an exhibition by Christian Marclay, which will be presented from 16 November 2022.
On 5 October 2022, the Mirabaud Group announced a new partnership with the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Founded in 1819 in Geneva, the Group has grown over the years to become the third largest private banking group in Geneva. It offers financial services and personalised advice in various fields of activity, including wealth and asset management, as well as highly specialised brokerage services. The Group has been involved in contemporary art projects for several decades. "Creativity and passion are fundamental to any kind of innovation, to think differently, to adapt," explains Lionel Aeschlimann, Managing Partner of Mirabaud. "Art connects us to our emotions and the ability to make us think more deeply about humanity and the world."
Mirabaud also joins the Friends of the Centre Pompidou, a community of more than 800 French and international patrons who have been supporting the enrichment of the collections and the influence of the Musée National d'Art Moderne for almost 120 years. Thanks to the dynamism of its members and patrons, the association has supported the acquisition of more than 150 works in 2021. "This new partnership is essential for the Centre Pompidou's artistic ambitions and to encourage the sharing of knowledge with all audiences," added Laurent Le Bon, President of the Centre Pompidou, in the press release.
The collaboration will be initiated by an exhibition by Christian Marclay, which will run from 16 November 2022 to 13 March 2023. The visual artist, who is also a musician and composer, was born in California in 1955 and is of Swiss origin, where he studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Geneva. His unique art, combining a multitude of media such as sound, album covers, tapes or film clips, brings visual art and music together in an unlikely common space. In the 1970s, he also became a pioneer in using vinyl turntables to create sound collages. His work has been exhibited at the Tate Moderne in London and the Palais de Tokyo, among others.
