There is a focus on innovation and young artists at the 15th edition of the Parcours Ceramique in Carouge and Geneva which takes place from September 16-24, 2017. Organised by the Bruckner Foundation, the event brings together artists from 12 countries in a series of events. The focus is at the Halles de la Fonderie which will have a “Ceramics Cafe” this year, and three young artists will create large-scale works in clay on-site. The artists featured here are Kate Roberts, Ema Skuladottir and Karin Blomgren. Guided tours of the exhibition spaces throughout Carouge set off from the Halles as well.
Parcours Highlights include:
Saturday, 16 September, 2017: launching of the 15th Parcours Céramique Carougeois, with the prize-giving ceremony of the International Ceramics Competition of the City of Carouge at 10 am; simultaneous vernissages at the exhibition locations in Carouge, at 11.30 am
17 and 23 September the Bruckner Foundation will host two demonstrations of ceramic creativity when an Englishwoman, Hannah Tounsend, and a Korean, Sejin Bae, will be giving the public a glimpse of their work techniques.
20 September the public is invited by the Spaniard, Nuria Torres, to a collaborative performance called “We are all different”, which examines the notion of identity. Finally, something else also not to be missed, the participatory sculptures which Pablo Castillo will create with the help of the public at the Atelier Maison Potter, and which will be enlivened by a fire in the course of a convivial evening.
Saturday, 24 September: evening closing ceremony and announcement of the Bruckner Foundation and Ariana Museum prizes at the Halles de la Fonderie at 5 pm.
