The Swiss contemporary art fair artgenève is taking place for the tenth time. In its anniversary year, it became the first in the international art calendar to start offline – all other shows continue to be postponed due to pandemic restrictions. From 3 to 6 March, Palexpo will house more than eighty galleries from around the world, and local museums are preparing parallel exhibition programs.

The cream of the gallery world comes to Geneva to share the art of the 20th-21st centuries with numerous local collectors. These include the Parisian marchants Galerie 1900-2000, Applicat-Prazan, Zlotowski and Le Minotaure, well-known in the Moscow Salons of Fine Arts, offering the art of surrealism and modernism from Pablo Picasso and Max Ernst to Russian masters of the Paris School. And contemporary art majors such as PACE, Kamel Mennour, Perrotin, Thaddaeus Ropac, David Zwirner and Almine Rech.

The entertainment program for the guests of the fair covers literally the entire city. For lovers of walks with maps, a fascinating parkour Art au Center Genève has been prepared – in different areas, art is integrated into the urban environment, as part of the open-air artgenève/sculpture section, large-format sculptures of outstanding contemporaries are placed in squares and parks. And the main museum hit awaits the audience at the Museum of Art and History of Geneva – the exposition “Draw your own conclusion” is working here. Its curator, renowned Frenchman Jean-Hubert Martin, was the author of the blockbuster exhibition “There Are Strange Rapprochements” at the Pushkin Museum, which closed in February. He applied his signature technique of witty mixes of various kinds of arts here as well.
