The United Nations Office at Geneva, together with D10 Art Space, is delighted to open a unique exhibition of artworks belonging to the United Nations art collection adorning the Palais des Nations. For the first time, a selection of the over 2000 artworks kept at the Palais des Nations is on public display in an art gallery in Geneva.
Entitled “Tout un Monde”, the exhibition highlights the role of art in the practice of multilateral diplomacy and the historical value of the Palais des Nations’ collection, built during 100 years, since the birth of the League of Nations in 1919. Tout un Monde presents a selection of artworks acquired during the long history of the Palais des Nations both by the League of Nations and the United Nations. These include donations by governments and individual artists.
This event is co-sponsored by the Permanent Mission of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Permanent Mission of Iceland, the Permanent Mission of Italy, the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation, and the Lian Foundation.
