Wine has always been an important part of Switzerland's history, and remains so today. The two museums accordingly decided to investigate the containers that carry the precious beverage from the cellar to the table. The intention is not to recount the history and usage of the glass bottle, but to map out the relationship between these functional receptacles and contemporary glass design.
From the 10th of February to the 25th of September 2016, The Olympic Museum celebrates Rio 2016 with a programme wholly dedicated to the culture and flavour of the city and of Brazil, host of the upcoming Olympic Games. Exhibitions and events will honour the diversity, the exuberance and the energy of Brazilian culture. This exhibition-adventure takes you on a lyrical tour of the city, which will give you the irresistible urge to dance. The photos, the choice of music and the artwork will convey the incredible energy of the Brazilian people. The programme will kick off during the Carnival in Rio and culminate with the two weeks of the Games in the summer.
