He was an elegant, mysterious man with indescribable talent. However, his whimsical, dark and imaginative art was not to everyone's taste. Even his native town of Chur had a hard time with his son, who soon became world-famous. Today, Giger is regarded as one of the most outstanding figures in Swiss art and design history and even those Chur residents who find his art rather alienating are now secretly proud of him. The great son has left his mark on Chur.

In 2024, the city and the Bündner Kunstmuseum are presenting a tribute to this extraordinary artist to mark the tenth anniversary of his death. Part of this Giger Year is an exhibition in the Stadtgalerie, in which the city of Chur will show works by the artist from the municipal art collection and the Bündner Kunstmuseum.

Those interested can experience the exhibition as part of a guided tour with the head of the cultural department of the city of Chur.

Opening hours:
Wednesday - Friday, 14:00 - 18:00
Saturday, 10:00 - 17:00
