Quartier Libre,
a cultural venue in the heart of Geneva

This iconic Geneva building on the Pont de la Machine has borne witness to the early industrialisation of the city and is the oldest of the Geneva industrial works on the Rhone in urban areas. It regulated the level of the river for a long time, prior to Seujet plant taking over. Now completely transformed, the building hosts Quartier Libre SIG.

ABCH Illustratrices Illustrateurs Jeunesse Suisses

Découvrez un abécédaire présentant 26 illustrateurs-rices jeunesse suisses. A chaque lettre de l’alphabet est associé une illustration et un mot qui, de manière évidente ou sous forme de clin d’œil, renvoient à des particularités de la Suisse. La sélection compte 10 romands parmi les 26 illustratrices et illustrateurs.
Au travers de cette exposition, SIG souhaite mettre en valeur le travail des illustratrices et illustrateurs suisses et faire découvrir le travail d’illustration trop souvent méconnu.
