Are you still looking for art for your home or for your collection? Then the Art Salon Zurich, which will take place this year from 28 September to 1 October at the SBB Areal at Hohlstrasse 400, is just the thing for you.
30 national and international galleries show over 160 artists. The basic idea is to actively promote art and support an active cultural policy for Switzerland as an art location. The fair shows contemporary art in particular on 1000 m2 of hall space and 700 m2 of tent space. The organisers want to give galleries and artists, but also a broad, interested art community, a platform for modern, exciting and collectible contemporary art.
The galleries present a variety of exciting artist positions, including street art and glass artist Simon Berger, who penetrates the depths of the medium of glass with his unique sculptural language. Early photographs by photographer Annelies Štrba from her historic “Shades of Time” series, which was recently honoured with a comprehensive exhibition at the Fotostiftung Schweiz in Winterthur, will be presented.
Douglas Mandry uses collected materials to reflect on the interaction between industrial development and our perception of nature. Known for his skilful use of variation, 87-year-old French painter Claude Villat has received worldwide recognition, including at MOMA, New York, and the prestigious Venice Biennale. Former Latvian representative at the 57th Venice Biennale, Miķelis Fišers uses carved wood and polished paint to probe the essence of human existence in his figurative artworks. Zurich-based concrete painter Christoph Haerle will present his latest works after more than 30 public installations throughout Switzerland.
And there are other very important Swiss and international artists represented, such as the stars of the scene Max Bill and Not Vital, as well as John Armleder, Jacqueline de Jong, Jessica Harrison, Miriam Prantl, Meret Oppenheim, Sylvia Gertsch, Lenz Klotz, to name but a few.
