A programme of thematic exhibitions is presented every year : paintings, sculptures, photographs, etc. In just a few years, the Palais Lumière has become one of the main cultural and artistic centres of the lake Geneva basin.
Inaugurated in August 1902, the institute of hydrotherapy is considered to be the best of its kind. Open from 15 May to 15 October, it administers 1,200 treatments a day: baths, showers, massages, and electrical and mechanical treatments. Architect Ernest Brunnarius designed an impressive building: 68 m long and 25 m high, topped with a 30-m dome on a square base. Along the partially tiled façade, the ramps lead to a monumental entrance framed by bell towers. Under the porch, two paintings by Jean Benderly depict water. Listed as a historical monument, the building was extensively renovated from 2004 to 2006. Renamed the "Palais Lumière", it now holds a multi-media library, exhibition rooms and a convention centre.
On the program from February 27 to May 30, 2021:
«La montagne fertile: les Giacometti, Segantini, Amiet, Hodler,et leur héritage»
The territory of Graubünden, a Swiss canton located in the middle of the Alpine arc, has long been a land of welcome and inspiration for many artists.
The exhibition traces the fruitful restitution of these landscapes at the dawn of the 20th century, through the gaze of a core of artists and is articulated in particular around the central and unifying character of Giovanni Giacometti.
