Helmhaus Zurich

Limmatquai 31
8001 Zurich
Exhibition
Online since 17 September 2014

The two Swiss artists Albrecht Schnider and Giacomo Santiago Rogado push the boundaries of painting to the limits. Both were born in Lucerne, and both have made Berlin their home. They apply their craftsmanship and insatiable curiosity to exploring the possibilities of painting in our time. The result is a form of "painting about painting" that thrives on the principle paradigms of art and nature. And: an exhibition of almost unbearable beauty. Read more...

Online since 8 September 2014

Katia Bourdarel, Youcef Korichi, Axel Pahlavi, Léopold Rabus, Jérôme Zonder

But that one-eyed look of hers, is it a final regard before disdain and oblivion? Or rather is it the first... an invitation to shared desire? The five painters in this exhibition play with the charms of interpretation, reappropriating the pictorial stakes of the Orientalist theme. Read more...
