artgenève / Sculptures      

artgenève/sculptures gives the opportunity to participating galleries as well as to private collections and institutions to exhibit sculptures in the city’s public space. In winter, the inauguration takes place during the fair and the sculptures are exhibited on the shores of the Lac Leman. In summer, they are installed in the Parc des Eaux-Vives. Exhibitions last for about 3 months.
