MASI Lugano opens its 2024 exhibition season with a tribute to a Swiss artist who wrote a significant chapter in the history of photography, Ernst Scheidegger. In the autumn, the focus on great photography then opens up to an international outlook, with the solo exhibition dedicated to Luigi Ghirri, which revolves around the theme of travel, both real and imaginary. This year also brings the work of one of the most innovative artists of the 20th century, Alexander Calder, to Lugano for the very first time, with the show "Calder. Sculpting Time".

The most recent contemporary practice takes centre stage in the exhibition by Swiss artist Shahryar Nashat, while the packed 2024 season rounds off in the autumn with a new in-depth look at the history of art in the Canton of Ticino and the museum’s collections in the exhibition "From Davos to Obino. Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and the artists of the Rot-Blau group."
