The Fifth Edition of Artgenève: Bringing Eclectic Global Talent to Geneva

No contributor

This year’s edition of Artgenève squarely puts the fair among the best of the International art fairs.  Quality works were exhibited by 89 galleries from around the world.

Among modern art galleries, there were great pieces: a delicate drawing featuring a headless female body by René Magritte; a large, egg-shaped silver piece by Lucio Fontana, showcased by De Jonckheere; an oil and wax encaustic on a canvas board featuring two colorful characters staring at each other by Victor Brauner; a piece by Cuban artist Wifredo Lam; and a beautiful black and brown painting by Pierre Soulage, showcased by La Beraudiere.

Not to be outdone, contemporary art galleries set high standards: there was a trombone stuck in a web of black strings by Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota, exhibited at Galerie Templon; photographs by Annie Leibovitz and Lucien Clergue, on view at Anselm Reyle; notable works by Anish Kapoor, represented by Cortesi; large-scale handmade carpets hung at Blain/Southern by African artist Abdoulaye Konaté; bronze and welded stainless steel sculptures by Lynn Chadwick; a collaboration between Swiss artist John Armleder and Suzanne Syz Art Jewels, where a custom sculpture covers each of the jewels; an interesting bronze, patina, silver, and glass sculpture by Thomas Lerooy, which was instantly sold, but is still on view, at Nathalie Obadia.

Special solo shows by Armleder and Damien Hirst, and a cardboard museum created for the fair by Elysee Lausanne. Artgenève, in partnership with the city of Geneva, also made use of external public spaces with a range of outdoor sculptures.
