Festival Images Vevey 2018 - Visual arts biennial

As official partner of the Festival Images Vevey, CBH is pleased to announce its participation to the most important visual art biennial in Switzerland.

Images will take over the town of Vevey from September 8-30th 2018. “Entirely free of charge, the festival is a true open-air museum as well as a quality platform for national and international artists. Held every two years for a period of three weeks, it enables tens of thousands of visitors to discover the best in contemporary photography.”

This year’s theme is Extravaganza. Out of the ordinary. Visitors will be able to discover 60 different projects, some in monumental format, from artists coming from 17 different countries.

“By showcasing established artists alongside young talents, Festival Images’ programme satisfies the curiosity of both specialists and the general public. The artistic projects on display invite visitors to experience Images in a novel way through out-of-the-ordinary installations and scenography.”

“The particularity of Festival Images Vevey is to custom design its exhibitions in order to strike the perfect balance between the works and the place in which they are exhibited, whether on museum walls, in a former prison, on monumental facades or in a derelict phone booth.”

CHB highly recommends the visit of this unique event in the Swiss artistic scene.
