The Rath Museum is hosting This is a Swiss Drawing (1990-2010), an exhibition from the Jenisch Museum in Vevey, produced in conjunction with the Contemporary Art Fund of the City of Geneva.
Contemporary drawing in Switzerland has developed in a particularly rich and fascinating way over the last several decades.
At the beginning of the 1980s, Charles Goerg and John M Armleder's exhibition Swiss Drawing 1970-1980, already underlined the affinity of Swiss artists for this medium.
Thirty years later, This is a Swiss Drawing (1990-2010) takes a new cross-section of artistic practices, using this opportunity to reflect once more on the links – proven or imaginary – between drawing and Swiss culture.
The exhibition draws together the works of fifty or so artists from the different linguistic regions. Visitors are invited to discover the different branches of contemporary drawing, its deployment ranging from paper supports to digital technologies (vectorial drawing), its methods of installation and interventions in situ.
