Each participating artist was welcome to involve other artists in the exhibition process. Thus, this collective show is like a lively organism, perpetually growing. The project takes the form of an architectural setting that becomes a place for collaboration where happenings, concerts, readings and screenings will take place.
The first exhibition curated by the new Director Andrea Bellini is an experimental project
where artists are authors and actors at the same time.
Andrea Bellini brought together the curator Tiphanie Blanc as well as a dozen of Swiss artists –mostly from the French speaking part of Switzerland- in order to develop a joint exhibition. The exhibition excludes all curatorial statement: it becomes a real exchange and reflection platform. Each participating artist was welcome to involve other artists in the exhibition process. Thus, this collective exhibition is like a lively organism, perpetually growing.
