Hacienda presents a weekend show at 1857.
This two-part exhibition brings together eight young artists from Switzerland.
One part takes place in EUROPE, EUROPE at the Astrup-Fearnley Museum from 22 January until 1 February, where each of the artists have produced a poster as a teaser for the show at 1857.
SUPERTRUMPF – A Lecture Performance by Matthias Gabi takes place on 22/1 at 18:30 at the Astrup-Fearnley Museum
The other part is on view at 1857 the weekend of 24 – 25 January.
At 1857 a cluster of pieces are gathered, all conceived for the occasion. The title,✚, has to be understood as an ironic reference to the rich exhibition history of Swiss art at home and abroad (Freie Sicht aufs Mittelmeer, Swiss Made – Präzison und Wahnsinn, Beispiel: Schweiz, Saus und Braus etc.).
Art exhibitions on the Swiss art scene have become a curatorial perennial in recent decades. The ways and forms by which artistic discourses and art scenes were institutionally represented, labeled and utilized have often been criticized. The flyer for ✚ references a notorious insert that Niele Toroni made for a catalog of Swiss art in the 1970s and –80s, in which Swiss crosses were filled with folkloristic imagery.
