The Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia announces title and first details about Philipp Kaiser's project at the Swiss Pavilion at the 57th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia
Swiss Pavilion 1952. Swiss Federal Archives, E3001B#1981/132#379*

The exhibition at the Swiss Pavilion at the 57th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia will be entitled «Women of Venice». New works will be specifically created for the pavilion, which will deal with Alberto Giacometti’s heritage and universe and his absence from the Venice Art Biennale. Giacometti, who lived in Paris, was repeatedly requested to represent Switzerland with an exhibition in Venice, a request that the artist regularly declined, while in 1956, he finally consented to put on display a group of cast figures entitled «Femme de Venise» in the French Pavilion. Curator Philipp Kaiser aims to explore concepts of national identity as well as cultural policy contexts. Find out more about the exhibition here.
