The sixth edition of artgenève opens today; the salon is an art exhibition, which aims to establish an artistic platform in the French-speaking Switzerland. It is at the very forefront of contemporary art, modern art and contemporary design – to pay homage to the requirements of the Lake Geneva region’s many art-lovers and collectors.
This year, among other illustrious institutions and private collections invited to present curated booths at the Salon d’Art, features also the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, exhibiting some of the Collection’s highlights.
David Czupryn’s (b. 1983) work is currently on view in New York for the exhibition Figure of Speech at Cassina Projects, curated by ARTUNER. In 2016 he has also won the Bergische Kunstpreis award, which led to a solo presentation at Kunstmuseum Solingen (Germany), and was included in the group exhibition Do Boomerangs Always Come Back at Kasteel d’Aspremont-Lynden (Belgium) alongside Tony Cragg and other artists. In his surrealist paintings David Czupryn creates fantastic worlds, inhabited by humanoid hybrids and built with materials found at the intersection between nature, man-made polymers and imagination.
Paul Kneale (b. 1986) has had a fantastic 2016, having had work included in the Moscow International Biennale for Young Art 2016, Project 1049 in Gstaad (which he also organised), and High Anxiety at the Rubell Family Collection in Miami. Being included in the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo booth at artgenève is a wonderful start of the year and we are thrilled to be showing his work soon in New York. Kneale is interested in how the world is constantly translated into a digital language which simplifies, trivialises and depersonalises content and the people it addresses. The artist explores the way in which digital facets of our existence can be manifested and reimagined in the flesh of the physical object.
Other artists included in the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo curated booth at artgenève are: Oscar Murillo, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Katja Novitskova, Paulina Olowska, Magali Reus, Tauba Auerbach, Jeff Elrod, Josh Kline, and Avery Singer.
