WE BRING ART & ARTISTS FROM SHANGHAI TO VENICE
SWATCH FACES 2015
Swatch and la Biennale di Venezia have renewed and strengthened their partnership in advance of the upcoming 56th edition of the world’s most prestigious exhibition of contemporary art, opening in May under the title “All the World’s Futures” given by its curator, Okwui Enwezor, and runs through November 2015.
Taking up its Swatch Faces theme, Swatch will present art as a force for change in the work of artists-in-residence from The Swatch Art Peace Hotel. From May through November 2015, selected artists-in-residence will be working “live” as guests of Swatch at TESA 100. A historic address in the Arsenale Nord — shipyards of the Republic of Venice and a major exhibition site for la Biennale — TESA 100 will host a series of artists-in-residence, their personal exhibitions and a range of other exciting events.
The other major, must-see venue at the 56th International Art Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia is the Giardini area, site of thirty historic national pavilions. Here too, Swatch has a surprise in store: a renowned contemporary artist will create a work for Swatch on site.
