  4. If you’ve been following us on our gallery hopping tour, you know that we were cruising through Switzerland last week. We simply couldn’t get enough of the beautiful scenery so we decided to stay put for the week and explore the gallery scene in Zurich a little bit more. We have four shows on our list this week. First up is Ana Pais Oliveira: Architektur und Farbe at Art Forum Ute Barth. Next we will jump over to Galerie Andres Thalmann to see the show Caetano de Almeida: Recent Works. Continuing with our zip tour we will swing by Galerie Haas AG Zürich to take a look at Slawomir Elsner: Duett. As our final destination of the tour, we will hop on over to Galerie Andrea Caratsch to catch the show Walter Dahn: Works From The 80’S. Zurich is the hot bed of activity for galleries this week and flying through Zurich to see art is a wonderful way to bid adieu to summer!

  5. Art Embodied at its Most Elegant

    In his twenties, Christian Dior exhibited works by Picasso, Dalí, Cocteau, Miró, Ernst, Klee, and Braque in his art gallery near the Champs-Élysées in Paris. Perhaps the simple lesson the future fashion designer learned from those provocateurs was that, when it comes to couture, looks cannot be deceiving: therefore such Dior lines as Verticale, Oblique, Ovale, Longue, Profilee, and Tulipe were all instantly recognizable classics.

  9. Gallery Hopping Through Switzerland

    We’re taking a road trip through Switzerland to catch this week’s hottest art shows. 

    The first stop on our itinerary is the idyllic city of Lucerne, where Galerie Urs Meile will host its second solo exhibition for the experimental artist, Li Gang (Chinese, b. 1986). The exhibit, Salt Road, will present a collection of new works by the artist, made from materials diverse as waste from exhaust emissions all the way to ordinary wood. There is no common thread binding all of the works together, instead they are bound by the overarching themes of experimentation and transformation.
