2022: Year of collaborations

Lago Mio is facing a vibrant 2022. From April to September we team up with the local Sonnenstube Offspace, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, and the Basel Kunstverein SALTS. In addition, we invite a student from a Swiss art school to spend the summer in Lugano.

As our first resident, we welcomed the Ukrainian musician Sergey Onischenko (Make Like A Tree) in Mid-April, when he already performed at the opening of our tricontinental project Quilombo (the exhibition is open by appointment until mid/end of May).

Details of all partnerships will follow here in due course.
