The Salon Suisse 2019 offers a series of performances, talks and cultural events supplementing the exhibition at the Swiss Pavilion at the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. 

In the piano nobile of the Palazzo Trevisan degli Ulivi where the Salon Suisse takes place, s l o w  questions the rhythm of creation and its intrinsic slowness. In an art world governed by the scopic dimension, slowing down would make way for sensoriality and resistance to productivism. This year, the programme engages with slowness and art by considering topics such as acceleration, bedding, slothing, hypnosis, and more. It brings together a range of participants from diverse backgrounds. Through a participatory programme based on an interdisciplinary approach, s l o w  fosters resonance, proximity and conviviality. 

This year’s Salonnière is Céline Eidenbenz (Director Valais Art Museum) with co-Salonnières Victoria Mühling (curator) and Anja Radomirovic (architect), the Salon Suisse 2019 will open on Saturday 11 May at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice, followed by 3 subsequent weekend at the Palazzo Trevisan degli Ulivi on 19 – 21 September17 – 19 October; and 21 – 23 November 2019.
