Experience an extraordinary visit of the new setting of the mudac and the Musée de l’Elysée!

On November 4, 2021, the Musée de l’Elysée and the mudac will receive the keys to their new building at Plateforme 10 during an official ceremony. This historic moment will be followed by a discovery weekend during which the public will be able to explore the finished building. On this occasion, we have given carte blanche to Christian Marclay, who will present an installation called “Unpacking”.


Christian Marclay - Unpacking

Saturday 6.11, 10am-1am and Sunday 7.11, 10am-10pm
The Musée de l’Elysée and the mudac have given Christian Marclay carte blanche. Under the title “Unpacking”, the artist invests the new exhibition spaces with thousands of images found in their archives, treating the architecture as a blank canvas, giving it a spectacular dimension and offering us a unique glimpse into the collections of both museums.

Discover the architecture of this new iconic building of Plateforme 10, guided by the teams of the Direction générale des immeubles et du patrimoine du canton de Vaud.
Duration: about 45 minutes
The tours are now fully booked, but a few spots will be available on-site. And you will of course be able to wander freely in the building during the entire weekend!
