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.

Come and enjoy a very special evening in the company of the artist, who will present his work in relation with the topic of this “Salon Suisse” Let’s build, which concentrates on the notions of self-built, “improvised” and spontaneous architecture.  Mohamed Abla conceived his work at a former shipyard  on the island of Giudecca.

Born in Mansoura, Mohamed Abla has exhibited works in his home country, all over Europe as well as in Cuba. He studied Fine Arts in Egypt and then graphics and sculpture in Zurich, Switzerland, before pursuing his studies in graphics in Austria. In 2007 he founded the Fayoum Art Center and in 2009 a caricature museum in Tunis (Fayoum), the first one of its kind in the Middle East. Mohamed Abla received many awards for his work. He is currently based on an island in the Nile, which provides him with a quiet source of inspiration. 

Address: “Consorzio Venezia Sviluppo, area ex-Lucchese”, Giudecca 604, Venezia
