The inauguration of Plateforme 10
The inauguration of Plateforme 10, Lausanne’s arts district, takes place on the weekend of June 18 and 19, 2022. Alongside the Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts (MCBA), the mudac and Photo Elysée will open the doors of their new building and inaugurate their exhibition spaces, as well as their joint restaurant and bookshop.
During this inaugural weekend, a wide range of events, shows and activities will be offered to the public: concerts and brass bands that will transport the audience to the far reaches of our planet or into the world of railways and train stations; audio siestas; poetic circus shows with way-out bits on daily scenes that occur in train stations; plays that take the audience on a journey through a dreamworld of stations and passing landscapes; and original card games that will challenge young and old alike.
Saturday, June 18, 2022, from 10am to 1pm
Sunday, June 19, 2022, from 10am to 8pm
Place de la Gare 17
Full program coming soon.
Train Zug Treno Tren exhibition
On the occasion of the reunion of the three cantonal institutions within Plateforme 10, a joint, transdisciplinary inaugural exhibition, Train Zug Treno Tren, is being presented from June 18 to September 25, 2022. Each museum proposes a different approach and explores in its own way the railway theme, paying tribute to the original vocation of the site on which Plateforme 10 is built, just a few steps from Lausanne’s main train station, a former stop along the mythic Venice Simplon Orient Express.
The inauguration of Photo Elysée and mudac took place on on the weekend of June 18 and 19. The building will then open its doors to the public with a joint exhibition of the three Plateforme 10 museums on the theme of the railway.
mudac – Lausanne’s Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts – is the only institution in Western Switzerland entirely dedicated to design.
