Häusler Contemporary is pleased to give an insight into the art scene of western Switzerland with an exhibition of eleven guest artists and one gallery artist. Xavier Fischer, who was invited to curate the show, made a selection of works that guide us into a world full of stories that call up art-historical references as well as fantastic narratives and myths.
Quite wide a «Röstigraben» still runs through the Swiss art. Although individual local positions are known in the French-speaking part of Switzerland and vice versa, in Zurich we know very little about what moves the scenes in the Lemanic region. Häusler Contemporary has one connection to the Romandie with Geneva-based artist Koka Ramishvili. In addition, our Zurich gallery director Gianfranco Schiavano studied in Geneva and from that time kept a curiosity for the creative energies seething there. On the occasion of this year’s Season Opening, he thus invited the young Art Advisor Xavier Fischer (*1991, Geneva, lives in Geneva and Zurich), to curate a show with art from the Romandie.
