MUDAC - musée de design et d'arts appliqués contemporains

Current exhibition

Rendez-vous 2020-2022

By Sylvie Rottmeier 5 November 2020

Since autumn 2020, the mudac closes its exhibition spaces to prepare its move to the PLATEFORME 10 arts district. Visits to the collections and exhibitions within the museum’s current walls on Place de la Cathédrale are interrupted. From this autumn onwards, the mudac will continue to welcome you for Les Rendez-vous 2020-2022.

These appointments offer a variety of events such as collaborations with festivals, offbeat conferences on the world of design or on the launch of new issues of RADDAR, our Annual Design Review. A large-scale artistic performance by an internationally renowned Swiss artist will also take place on the day the keys to the new building at PLATEFORME 10 will be held over. Walking tours of Lausanne offering a ground-breaking exploration of themes linked to design.

These events will punctuate the two years separating us from the opening of the museum at PLATEFORME 10, as a way of pursuing a dialogue with design enthusiasts and of remaining aware to external vibrations.
