Opening: June 12, 2020
Following the success of its first edition in summer 2018, the new Sculpture Garden Biennale is held for the second time from June 12 to September 10, 2020 in the heart of the City of Geneva. The ambition of this project is to establish itself as a major summer artistic event for the region, placing Geneva on the map for local inhabitants as well as for the many national and international visitors.
Initiated and organized by artgenève in collaboration with the MAMCO (Geneva’s contemporary art museum) and the City of Geneva, the Biennale is curated by Balthazar Lovay.
In 2020, the Biennale presents about thirty large-scale sculptures on display in three magnificent public areas particularly busy during the summer period: parc des Eaux-Vives, parc La Grange and the new Eaux-Vives beach.
Throughout the summer period, several events such as the opening reception, afterwork events, conferences (bringing together personalities from the art world), performances and guided tours are regularly come to animate the outdoor sculpture exhibition. Other cultural events and leisure activities are forging links between the biennale and its public throughout the summer.
