Marguerite Arp Foundation

A collection of over 1,600 works of art

Since 2015, the Arp Foundation has had a modern art store and exhibition space at its Ronco dei Fiori location in Locarno-Solduno.

The compact concrete building (designed by architects Gigon&Guyer, Zurich) blends harmoniously into the complex formed by the atelier house and the garden, which have remained unchanged over the decades, and includes an art depository that meets the most modern conservation parameters and, on the first floor, an exhibition hall of synthetic proportions, capable of accommodating Arp's elementary organic forms, where a new exhibition is presented each year.
