For the sixteenth time, an insight into recent Swiss artistic creation is offered, enabling a broad public to discover new contemporary art.
It is an annual exhibition series that offers a cross-section of the current art work of young artists in Switzerland. Since 2016, the exhibition has taken place in changing regions of Switzerland and is hosted by a different institution each time.
In spring 2022, the platform will be on view at Kunsthalle Palazzo. The exhibition features new works by bachelor's and master's graduates of Swiss art schools. The selection was made by a jury on the basis of visits to the final exhibitions of the Swiss art academies, as well as interviews with the artists.
Plattform22 presents new works by: Rhoda Davids Abel, Dianita, Andrea Fortmann, Gerome Gadient, Elin Gonzalez, Lorenzo Lunghi, Nicolas Ponce, Michael Ray-Von, Alexandra Shéhérazade Salem, Lourenço Soares, Mariana Tilly and Jonas Van Holanda.
Organization and jury: Marlene Bürgi, Martin Genton, Julie Marmet, Noemi Pfister and Colin Raynal.
The platform was founded in 2007 by Charlotte Matter, Andreas Mattle and Reto Thüring and took place during the first years in the ewz substation Selnau in Zurich. Since 2011, the platform has been held in partnership with Kunstpreis Helvetia.
