ART GENEVE PROVES IT’S GOT STAYING POWER

ART GENEVE PROVES IT’S GOT STAYING POWER

Attendance at the Art Genève 2017 fair, held in January, topped last year’s figures, not only benefiting Geneva businesses but also testifying to the region’s rising prominence in the world of contemporary art. In addition, these numbers reflected an increase in visitors from abroad. Continuing yet another upwards trend, this year’s exhibition attracted 86 galleries from 15 countries.

Natural Le Coultre was pleased to have been able to participate in the event as a forwarding agent for both Swiss and international galleries. Considering the wide variety of artworks on show, catering to a diverse audience of enthusiasts, Art Genève 2017 made a positive overall impression, with appreciative gestures seen between participants and specialists – all of whom benefited from this art fair’s personal dimension.

Among the highlights of this year’s event were Anthony McCall’s monumental light installation and Adel Abdessemed’s sculpture, a giant skeleton on loan from Mamco, the museum of modern art in Geneva. We also enjoyed the new section dedicated to cinema, which projected Andy Warhol films.

Above all, we were happy to see Geneva succeed in hosting a successful exhibition despite the number of other fairs crowding the art world’s calendar. Already now, we look forward to seeing you at next year’s event, which will again be held at the Palexpo convention centre, from 1 to 4 February 2018.
