Following the success of the first edition held in summer 2018, the second Sculpture Garden biennial will be held in Geneva city centre until 30 September. The exhibition begins today with twelve installations, while other works will gradually be added.
The aim of Geneva's Sculpture Garden biennial is to establish itself as a major artistic event within the region, offering Geneva’s inhabitants a free exhibition of high-quality open-air sculptures throughout the summer.
For its second edition, the exhibition will thus take place in three magnificent public areas which are particular favourites with the population during the summer: Parc des Eaux-Vives, Parc La Grange and Quai Gustave-Ador. Around thirty artistic projects, some of which have been created especially for the exhibition, will be presented to the public. The event also includes “after-work” aperitifs, conferences bringing together personalities from the world of art and performance evenings.
An ambitious project in terms of its international dimension, the number of artists invited and the topics explored, the exhibition is defined by its humble relationship with parks, nature and the landscape in general. The biennial steering committee and the curator have created the necessary conditions for artists to create projects designed deliberately for Geneva’s parks and to present them during the event.
From 12 June to 30 September 2020
Initiated and organised by artgenève in collaboration with MAMCO and the City of Geneva, the 2020 biennial falls under the auspices of Balthazar Lovay, the former director of Fri Art Kunsthalle, Fribourg.
