Artist Residency

The Swatch Art Peace Hotel Artist Residency Program is designed to bring together artists from around the world to experience a unique cultural environment dedicated to contemporary art.

Selected artists are invited to live and work from 3 to 6 months in workshop studios on dedicated hotel floors, in a community of 18 people from all artistic horizons and national origins.

The focus of the Residency is on creative exchange. Artists are free to engage in individual or joint projects. All participants will be asked to leave an artistic “trace” at the end of their stay.
