Grants of the City of Geneva 2022
Berthoud, Lissignol-Chevalier and Galland for young contemporary creation
Since 1955, the City of Geneva has awarded two grants to support young contemporary artists in the fields of visual and applied arts. Each grant is worth CHF 10,000 and is intended for artists under 35 years of age, offering them the opportunity to develop personal research or to pursue studies, for example abroad. In parallel with the City of Geneva’s global reflection on the remuneration of artists, their working conditions and their recognition as professionals in a more general way, it was decided to allocate to each artist invited to exhibit an artist fee of CHF 2000 for production costs. These grants are an important part of the City of Geneva’s commitment to the promotion and support of artists.
Fifteen artists have been selected to exhibit their work in an exhibition to be held from September 2 to October 2, 2022 at the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève:
Agapornis (Louise Jarrige — Le Berre & Zoé Marmier), Marilou Bal, Fanny Balmer, James Bantone, Tristan Bartolini, Gustave Didelot, Rémi Dufay, Camille Dumond, Nagi Gianni, Virginie Jemmely, Yasmine Nabli, Sébastien Schnyder, Jonathan Vidal, Ilana Winderickx & Louise Leï Wang.
Opening and announcement of the winners on September 1st, from 6pm.
Cocktail until 8pm
Presence of models and performance “The Joke’s on you” by Virginie Jemmely from 6pm to 9pm
