Espace Jean Tinguely–Niki de Saint Phalle

Espace Jean Tinguely–Niki de Saint Phalle Review

Once the city's tram terminal, this is one of the premier modern-art spaces in Switzerland. It houses a selection of whirring, tapping, spinning metal sculptures by Jean Tinguely and a wall full of the voluptuous, colorful work of his wife, Niki de Saint Phalle. After working in the Dadaist movement, Tinguely (1925-1991) made headlines as a pioneer of the "kinetic art" movement. Kids (16 and under free) are often fascinated by Tinguely's work; something is happening somewhere all the time: skis are walking, a potted plant is turning, a toy rabbit is being hit on the head.
