the end of the exhibition programme 2013 the Bündner Kunstmuseum Chur presents
the Annual Exhibition of Artists from Graubünden. The exhibition
provides an overview of the current artwork in and from Graubünden. This year
40 artists have been invited to show their work. For this the entire Villa
Planta has been made available.
for the annual exhibition are artists who are citizens of Graubünden or who
grew up here, as well as all those who have been permanent residents in the
canton for at least one year. The artists have applied for participation in the
exhibition with documentation and an exhibition proposal for a maximum of three
works. All the entries were juried, meaning they were either admitted to the
show or rejected. The jury consists of one representative of the Bündner
Kunstverein (Marco Obrist, Curator Kunsthaus Zug), two representatives of the
artists from Graubünden (Menga Dolf, artist and Corina Menn, architect), one
member elected by free choice (Christoph Rösch, artist and Director NAIRS) as
well as of an external expert (Konrad Bitterli, Curator Kunstmuseum St.
Gallen). Of the 115 applications the jury admitted 40 artists for the
exhibition. For the chosen positions all the rooms of the Villa Planta have
been made available this year.
public opening of the exhibition is on Saturday, December 7, at 5 pm. On this
occasion the new publication of Evelina Cajacob, who received the Kunstpreis of
the Südostschweiz Media at the last Annual Exhibition, will be presented.
During the exhibition there will be public tours as well as the Art Bar on
Thursday evenings inviting those interested to exchange ideas with the artists.
Besides, at the opening, as well as on December 13 and 20 there is a
performance by Chris Hunter + Alexandra Meyer.
