Nirvana – Strange Forms of Pleasure
28 October to 26 April, 2015
Nirvana – Strange Forms of Pleasure, the latest exhibition to open at Mudac in Lausanne, Switzerland, should offer a comprehensive exploration of the influence of erotica in design, fashion and contemporary art. The show will feature more than 200 exhibits, made by around 100 contemporary creatives including Zaha Hadid, Marc Newson and Studio Job. The exhibition aims to encourage visitors to challenge their pre-existing perceptions of pleasure and to explore how pleasure can slip between the private and public spheres. In addition to the main exhibition space, three further rooms will be dedicated to bespoke installations focusing upon the work of three individual artists: Mark Woods, Betony Vernon and Nika Zupanc.
