The University of St.Gallen in Switzerland owns an impressive collection of art which covers a span of more than 50 years and which has been integrated into the architecture of the University. Notable artists such as Alberto Giacometti, Gerhard Richter, Georges Bracque, Hans Arp, Alexander Calder, Antoni Tàpies, Joan Miró, Enzo Cucchi, Mimmo Paladino, and Yan Pei-Ming are all part of the collection.
In addition to this collection, Art@Tell was launched in 2013 as a separate project. It aims to offer a platform to visual artists who are currently not represented by art dealers or gallerists.
Twice a year, independent artists have the opportunity to submit projects for a recently acquired building of the University at Tellstrasse 2 in St.Gallen. A curator will choose 5 projects from the applications received that will then be exhibited for six months in the school building. Applications can be made for one of the 5 space options specifically (please see separate documents on our website for options available) or without any particular space in mind. The final decision on the space allotted to the selected projects is made by the curator.
The University will assume the full costs for transport of the artwork, as well as for the artist’s travel to Switzerland for the installation and opening of the exhibition.
The first call for artists resulted in a compelling number of 750 applications. The five projects chosen by Ms. Tamar Ette, the curator of the first edition in 2013, were inaugurated on January 17, 2014, and will be exhibited until the end of July 2014.
The opening of the second edition of Art@Tell will be curated by Ms. Deborah Keller and will be opened in mid-August 2014.
