a cultural venue in the heart of Geneva
Quartier Libre, the SIG exhibition space
Quartier Libre is a space dedicated to culture, with diverse, interactive and educational exhibitions on:
Jean Tinguely and Niki de Saint Phalle - Posters
SIG presents "Jean Tinguely and Niki de Saint Phalle - Posters", from March 28 to September 16, 2018, at the pont de la Machine. This exhibition invites the public to view posters reflecting the vast creative scope of each artist, as well as posters resulting from their joint artistic works. Based on a scenography articulated in two stages, from March to June, the visitor views the posters of Jean Tinguely and subsequently, from June to September, those of Niki de Saint Phalle. A multi-coloured and joyful exhibition, highlighting an exceptional artistic duo with unique styles.
By way of this exhibition, SIG strives to share the genius of two great artists, combining technique, aesthetics, innovation, as well as audacious styles. It is an opportunity to pay tribute to the Swiss artist, Jean Tinguely, as well as to his passion for mechanics and the use of recycled materials in his audacious works of art.
