Grants of the City of Geneva 2021
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 2,000 for production costs. These grants are an important part of the City of Geneva’s commitment to the promotion and support of artists.
Opening and announcement of the laureates on Tuesday September 7 from 6pm.
Fifteen artists have been selected to exhibit their work in an exhibition to be held from September 8 to October 10, 2021 at the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève:
