Opening Musée Unterlinden

COLMAR, FRANCE, 23 January 2016 – On Saturday, 23 January, President of France François Hollande will inaugurate the new Unterlinden Museum (“Le nouveau Musée Unterlinden”) in the Alsatian city of Colmar in presence of the Swiss federal president, Johann Schneider-Ammann. The extension project by Herzog & de Meuron unites three dimensions: the urban, the architectural, and the museographic. After three years of construction, the museum has almost doubled its exhibition area, including a new space for special exhibitions, the first of which is called “Agir. Contempler”, curated by Jean-François Chevrier in collaboration with Herzog & de Meuron. The museum’s centerpiece – the Isenheim altarpiece by Matthias Grünewald and Nicolas de Haguenau – is also newly presented in the church of the former Dominican convent now housing the Musée Unterlinden.
