MIRABAUD OFFERS FREE ENTRY TO MAMCO AS PART OF ITS 200-YEAR ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS

Geneva, 14 January 2019. Founded in Geneva in 1819, Mirabaud, an international banking and financial group, this year celebrates its bicentenary. To mark the occasion, Mirabaud is offering free entry to Geneva’s Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MAMCO) for the whole year.

Thanks to a special grant, access to MAMCO will be free for all visitors until 31 December 2019. Admission is normally CHF 15 per ticket.

“Throughout its 200-year history, Mirabaud has always been interested in preserving cultural and artistic heritage,” said Lionel Aeschlimann, Managing Partner of Mirabaud. “For us, supporting contemporary art is a natural progression, as it plays an important role in encouraging us to see the world in a different light. It is in this spirit that Mirabaud has decided to make entry to MAMCO free in 2019, to enable everyone to share in this experience and the values that contemporary art conveys.”

Mirabaud is committed to raising the Geneva’s profile, and is a partner of several cultural and sporting bodies and events, such as the Bol d’Or Mirabaud, the Geneva Lux festival of lights, the Quartier des Bains association and Geneva.art, to name but a few.

Mirabaud’s links with MAMCO go back a long way, with one of Mirabaud’s former Partners being a founding member of the museum. Mirabaud has partnered with MAMCO since 2017.

Mirabaud is also a partner of the International Contemporary Art Fair (FIAC) and the major artwork in Place Vendôme in Paris, as well as the Zurich Art Weekend, a public event involving museums, organisations and galleries over a weekend.

Additional information: MAMCO is open from 12 noon to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays to Fridays, and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at weekends. For additional information, including a programme of activities, go to: www.mamco.ch
