The Centre pour limage contemporaine Saint-Gervais Geneva is pleased to present Version animée, 7th edition, the Animation in Contemporary Art, an international group show which features 30 artists from all around the world, curated by Laurence H Dreyfus (invited curator) and Isabelle Aeby Papaloïzos (assistant curator).

About fifteen installations are shown with animated film programs and one musical clip program.
About the Exhibition Version Animée is an exploration of new forms of narrative and new ways of installing moving images.

Drawing and animated works are currently popping up and invigorating contemporary artmaking. A practice based on the gesture is coming back with a vengeance and is assuming the status of a work of art. Drawings are no longer viewed as preparatory works. In the field of animated cinema, they are enabling practitioners to break down technological and spatial limits and expand what is possible. Drawing is being done directly on walls and finding a place in installations and environments. Painting is coming alive. Animation is now being projected on oiled paper, designer furniture, or architectural structures. All of the artists featured in Version Animée have explored singular ways of diffusing their work and are developing new paradigms. The appearance of these modalities, which bring together drawing and the moving image, springs from the mastery of several technological layers (interactive strolls, animated films, cut scenes of video games, scratch films) combined with an influence of music video culture. Laurence Dreyfus.
