On Sunday 23 September 2018, from 11am to 6pm, ten companies and institutions will host Private Art Kirchberg for the eleventh time.
Allen & Overy, Arendt, Clearstream, Deutsche Bank Luxembourg, European Investment Bank, EY, Fidelity, Fonds Kirchberg, Pictet & Cie (Europe) S.A. and UBS will open their buildings to the public in order to present their art collections.
The pieces of art range from paintings over sculptures to contemporary photography and installations. The event is free of charge and no registration is necessary. Guided tours will give insights into the different art collections. Suzanne Cotter, the art director of MUDAM, the museum for contemporary art, selected one "coup de cœur" of each collection.
Philip Brown, Co-CEO of Clearstream Banking S.A., said: "Private Art Kirchberg is a great initiative from and for the Luxembourg community. It opens up the participating companies and institutions for the public, combining the visit with the diversity of different collections and concepts of art."
In recent years, more and more companies and institutions in Luxembourg have become involved in private art collections. The initiative Private Art Kirchberg was born out of a common desire to make these hidden treasures accessible to the public. Since 2006, the participating companies and institutions have been opening up their doors every two years, transforming the Kirchberg plateau into a unique art gallery.
It allows art lovers and the interested public to take a walk in a district that is normally known for business activities, shopping and gastronomy.
