Open Studios & Special Drinks

12. August 2022

On Thursday, August 18, starting at 7 pm, we want to celebrate with you! Together with the resident artists Mohamed Harb, Mia Sanchez and Gaia Del Santo, and our partners Pro Helvetia – Swiss Arts Council and Sonnenstube Offspace we invite you to a small garden party with open studios, snacks, and special drinks.

In mid-June, Zurich-based artist Gaia Del Santo moved in with us shortly after completing the BA Fine Arts program at the ZHdK. Gaia’s work centers around the becoming of Extremely Online people and the Young-Girl as the ideal consumer model. Through textile, sculpture, and video, she explores the pervasiveness of networked spaces and the effects of the constant self-mythologizing on social media. Gaia’s invitation is the result of an open call to all Swiss art schools. >

Lago Mio is a partner residency of the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia. Since the beginning of July, we have been hosting Mohamed Harb (who lives and works in Gaza), the first Palestinian guest artist of Pro Helvetia in Switzerland. Mohamed is a painter, photographer, video artist, and documentary filmmaker. His short and feature films have been honored at various festivals, such as the Cannes Film Festival in the Palestinian Showcase. >

Until 21 August 2022, we are hosting Basel-based artist MIA SANCHEZ as part of SouvenirSouvenir, curated by SONNENSTUBE Offspace. The program of micro-residencies runs between April and September 2022 as an extended invitation to all participants of this year's Swiss Art Awards – to explore the potential of Ticino, to get in contact with the local social fabric, to promote the building of networks for cultural exchange across borders. At the Open Studios, Mia and Sonnenstube will serve a joint Special Cocktail! >
