From 26 to 27 September 2020
On September 26 and 27, after more than 400 exhibitions, the Musée de l'Elysée will leave the building that has housed it for the past 35 years. Unusual visits and workshops for all audiences will be offered inside the museum, in parallel with the last days of the "reGeneration4" exhibition.

Launched in 2005 and repeated every five years, the reGeneration project devoted to emerging international photography will be holding its fourth event for the Musée de l’Elysée’s 35th anniversary. In 2021, shortly before it moves into a new building designed to meet its needs, the Musée de l’Elysée hopes to make reGeneration a gateway between a past to promote and a future to map out. Rather than going through schools of art and photography to choose works to exhibit – as has been done in the past – the Musée de l’Elysée contacted the 180 photographers of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd editions to follow their progress and ask them, this time, to suggest candidates for reGeneration4.

From 29 January to 01 June 2020
René Burri was born in 1933 and died in 2014 in Zurich, Switzerland. Throughout his life, he was on the front line of global history. He joined Magnum Photos in 1955, becoming one of its members in 1959. Over the course of his career spanning almost sixty years, he travelled to Europe, the Middle East, North, Central and South America, Japan and China, recording with lucidity and acuity most of the momentous events of the second half of the 20th century.
The Musée de l'Elysée is temporarily closed to prepare its move to PLATEFORME 10, the new arts district of Lausanne. The Musée de l'Elysée and mudac's new building handover ceremony will take place from November 4 to 7, 2021. The inauguration of the exhibition areas is scheduled for June 2022.
