Magritte. La Ligne de vie

The exhibition Magritte. La Ligne de vie, held in partnership with the Magritte Foundation in Brussels, includes approximately ninety of the Belgian artist’s works, on loan from international museums and private collectors.

The exhibition focuses around the theme of a conference entitled “La Ligne de vie” which Magritte held in Antwerp in 1938. At this conference, one of the few occasions on which the artist spoke publicly about his work, Magritte described the evolution of his artistic philosophy and mentioned the artists who had the greatest influence on him.

The exhibition documents Magritte's evolution, starting with his youthful works – unlike conventional exhibitions which normally show only his most characteristic creations – and cast light on the influence of the Italian avant-garde movements on his work through parallels with a number of futuristic and metaphysical works.

Museo d’arte della Svizzera italiana

The Museo d’arte della Svizzera italiana, Lugano represents the arrival point for a deep-seated revision of the cultural policies that led to the merging of the Museo Cantonale d’Arte and the Museo d’Arte di Lugano in one single institution. The museum has two locations: LAC offers events and exhibitions aimed at delving deeper into twentieth-century and contemporary art and its collections, while at Palazzo Reali the focus is on the history of the art of this territory, and the valorization of specific groups of works in the collections.
MASI Lugano’s main partner is Credit Suisse, thus confirming the institution’s historical commitment to art in Lugano.
