Cahier 2017 at Ground, Moscow
The “Extended Cahiers” exhibition at the GROUND Art Centre in Moscow provides the occasion to show this very large material and digital archive of Swiss contemporary art trends. The presentation of all of the publications featured in these past 30 years, realised by the independent curator Madeleine Amsler and by Patrick Gosatti, in charge of the Cahiers project, is conceived as a living facility, a dynamic and branched extension of works in space and on the walls. Imagined as an extended book, such a presentation intends to highlight the topicality of the archive as well as its reactivation potential. Besides the presentation of the original publications, the hanging presents an abundant selection of images, photographs, impressions taken from numerous pages of the Cahiers d’Artistes as well as artistic actions specially realised for this exhibition.
CAHIERS 2017 AT LIVING ROOM
13-15 JUNE 2017, 10 AM-8 PM
With its Collection Cahiers d’Artistes, Pro Helvetia enables aspiring Swiss artists the publication of an initial monograph to their name. This represents a unique opportunity to make their work better known to the international art scene as well as to a wider audience.
The Cahiers d’Artistes will be presented throughout the week at LIVING ROOM, a temporary space conceived as a place for discovering emerging Swiss artists, an open platform for discussion as well as a meeting point for the public. Pro Helvetia will host a series of conversations with national and international guests on a range of subjects related to its activities in the visual arts.
