As the programme «COINCIDENCIA» develops further, we are very happy to announce three agreements we have made with Swiss partners to host South American artists in residence in 2019. Utopiana is the name of a transdisciplinary residency space in Geneva, hosting a series of artistic projects, that share an interest in the ethical relationship between human and nature. La Becque is a new residency space recently launched at the shores of the Lake Geneva near Vevey, which will host artists from various artistic practices and, to some extent, will be looking for connections between art and science. Residency.ch is an artist-run visual arts residency in Bern, at the PROGR cultural centre, right in the centre of the city.
Hosting South American artists on studio residencies in Switzerland is a next step for «COINCIDENCIA» in creating durable artistic relationships and the potential for triggering new creative processes.
