MAMCO, Geneva

The Musée d'art moderne et contemporain, MAMCO, is to be found in the Bains district of Geneva, Switzerland.

In the main the exhibits pale into insignificance against the beauty of the building, which started life as a fabric factory.

The museum opened in 1984. One of the first exhibits was a set of four works in neon tubing, reading ART, TEXT, LIGHT and SIGN (below).

On 5 March 2015 Royal Mail published a set of special stamps, on the subject of UK bridges. The design of the special issue was undertaken by Gregory Bonner Hale. GBH approached YMGW in November 2013 with a request to use an image of the Humber Bridge. The image has been utilised in the background of the reverse of the special issue presentation pack.
