Dealing with innovative concepts for integrating successful arts precincts, museums and institutions, as well as established collector-focussed program, the art fair promises that 2015 continues a successful story.
Long-established as the original incubator for emerging work, Zurich’s art event celebrates its seventeen’s year of introducing new galleries to the contemporary market, a remarkable opportunity for exposure Galerie Zum Harnisch.

Regarding the selection of artists’ positions the gallery director Priska Medam explains the concept of her curated show: “Techniques and artistique signatures are different and for each artist unique. The selected works at my booth are showing how various approaches and how dynamism, movement and perception experiments have entered the artistic topography. The eye as the human organ of sight became an artistic tool for investigating reality and learning about perception as well as investigating illusion and disillusion.”
