Exhibition: Collection V / Adrian Schiess, Bernhard Schobinger, Annelies Štrba
The Gift of the Graber Collections
19. September bis 15. November, 2015
Once you’re on the road you often meet like-minded travellers. The same applies to the Kunsthaus Zug holdings, and just such a happy encounter of affinities took place with regard to the collections of Sonja Graber and Christian Graber. Usually, for example, a rigorous distinction is made between the visual and the applied arts. In the collection of the Kunsthaus Zug, which encompasses the Viennese workshops, no such line is drawn. What is more, they have already devoted exhibitions to Annelies Štrba and Bernhard Schobinger, both of whom are represented in their collection.
Sonja Graber and Christian Graber are long-time friends, neighbours and collectors of the photographer Annelies Štrba, the jewellery and object artist Bernhard Schobinger and the painter Adrian Schiess. Their paths cross in Richterswil. Far removed from considerations of prestige and/or profit-making, but on the basis of artistic and personal appreciation instead, the Grabers amassed one of the most extensive collections of the works of these three artists – all of whom today enjoy international recognition – with examples from all phases of their careers.
