Salon de Rot ¬
11 – 14 October 2018
Collecting with Passion
For the third time by now, Museum Villa Rot has invited selected, supraregionally operating galleries to the rural idyll of Burgrieden-Rot for a unique art fair in a beautiful setting. The participating twelve galleries from four countries will present their programs and their artists in the intimate exhibition spaces of the old, prestigious and in the modern, representative kunsthalle.
For four days, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of contemporary art, to swap ideas with gallery owners and artists, and maybe even acquire new works for their own collections.
The Salon de Rot takes place in remembrance of our museum-founder Hermann Hoenes (1900 – 1978), a passionate art lover. For him, music, visual arts and crafts were indispensable factors in his life, which is why he started to collect artworks, mainly of Asian origin, in the 1920s. His good contacts to well-known art dealers, his regular visits of auctions, his extensive amount of academic literature and close contact with experts of the art world made him an enthusiastic and passionate collector.
In the spirit of the early Paris salons of the 17th century and in the tradition of Feodora and Hermann Hoenes, the Salon de Rot is not only supposed to serve as a platform and venue for contemporary art, but also as a social event, a place to meet, discuss and reflect upon art. In this context, a delightful kitchen party at the renowned restaurant Oberschwäbischer Hof, Schwendi, followed by a jazz-soiree will offer a perfect complement to this special format.
We are very much pleased to invite everybody to come by and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the Salon de Rot in Burgrieden-Rot!
