"ART SNEAKS INTO THE CITY "
2000-06-17 until 2000-08-31
TRANSFERT
Biel - Bienne, , CH Switzerland

Thirty-nine artists (Europe, USA, Thailand) have been invited to work in the urban setting. They sneak into the city's infrastructures and question art's ability to work its way into our everyday lives. TRANSFERT is the 10th Swiss Sculpture Exhibition to be held in Bienne. The first exhibition in this series – a pioneering one in its determination to show art in the public place – dates back to 1954, the last one to 1991. This major show is under the patronage of a committee made up of personalities like Ruth Dreifuss, Moritz Leuenberer, Yvette Jaggi, Herzog & de Meuron, Simon de Pury, etc. A voluminous, 480-page catalogue (Engl./Ger./Fr.) is being published to accompany the exhibition.
