After devoting all of 2006 to the Aller-Retour cycle, the Centre culturel suisse now proposes
a program without a specific theme. Always decidedly pluridisciplinary, the #1/07 event presents budding young artists and more established ones who renew themselves.
Exhibitions
WORKER, DRONE, QUEEN
In the main exhibition space, we present, a group show by four artists: CAROL BOVE, VIDYA GASTALDON, AMY O’NEILL and MAI-THU PERRET. Under this title, chosen like the program visual by the artists themselves, this exhibition brings together four young women who were born in the 1970s. All four live in or come from Geneva, and most of them know each other well. Although this collective proposal embodies no theoretical or formal link between the works, one can nevertheless distinguish similarities in their investigations which feature specific references to manual skills or the crafts, or to elements relating to precise moments of 20th century history.
e-flux video rental by ANTON VIDOKLE and JULIETA ARANDA (Berlin-New York).
EVR is a multiple project which includes a free video club, as well as film and video screenings and archives. The collection, which consists of nearly 700 works, was constituted in cooperation with over 80 artists, curators and international critics. Initially created in New York in 2004, EVR has been presented in Amsterdam, Berlin, Frankfurt, Seoul, Istanbul, the Canary Islands, Austin (Texas), Budapest, Anvers, Miami and Boston. At every stopover in a new city, art professionals are invited to select new artists whose works are incorporated in the collection.
Guest commissioners: CHRISTINE MACEL, MICHEL RITTER, MARIA-INES RODRIGUEZ, FABRICE STROUN, and NICOLAS TREMBLEY.
Selected videos will be screened on the 14.04, 26.04, 21.06 and the 12.07 at 18h (free
