2020, August/September: Late summer residency
​2020, Sat 7 November: Exhibition opening

The lake view residency above the roofs of the old town comprises ten rooms on 250 m2. In addition to curatorial support and housing cost takeover, Lago Mio provides a budget at free disposal, travel support, and additional production support for the final exhibition. Based on our 2019 experience, we accompany a guest who is unable to travel for legal, health, or other reasons. Lago Mio, the first artist residency in the old town of Lugano, Switzerland, was founded in 2018 by Carlotta Zarattini & Benedikt Wyss, inaugurated in 2018 (and 2019) with a sleep-over happening/installation by conceptual artist Johannes Willi. 2019 it opened its doors to three filmmaking artists: Chika Anadu, Zayne Armstrong, and Tobias Madison (resident in physical absence). For the 2020 late summer residency in August/September 2020, including an exhibition opening on 23 October 2020, Lago Mio welcomes Johanna Bruckner, Till Langschied, and – as non-physical resident – Diana Lelonek.

Directors: Carlotta Zarattini (host), Benedikt Wyss (curator)
Jury: Elise Lammer, Benedikt Wyss, Claudio Vogt
​Committee: Giulia Brivio, Samuel Leuenberger, Alice Nicotra, Claudia Scholz, Philip Selzer, Giovanna Silva, Johannes Willi
