"The first room of Once Upon A Time... The Collection Now offers an introduction to what you will discover in the rest of the exhibition. It takes four individual artworks made over the last 70 years and tells their stories over the course of time" (p. 13).

The four artworks are made by Picasso, Buste de Femme (1943), Judd, untitled (1961-69), Baer, Demi-Pirouette (1981) and Mareschal Beiti (2011).
