Palais de l’Athénée – Salle Crosnier

At the beginning, the Salle Crosnier was created to highlight the works of the drawing school’ s students. Since 1970, this structure has regularly welcomed shows by young artists. Made up of volunteers, the committee in charge of choosing the young talents is made up of art historians and critics, architects, journalists, teachers and collectors, themselves close to the world of art. The Salle Crosnier is dedicated to supporting emerging artists who have just graduated. It offers them the possibility to show and publish (Les Cahiers dela Classe des Beaux-Arts) their work. It is attached to embodying an important and seminal moment in the career of the artists: to design, for a specific and historical place, a monographic exhibition implying a solid scenographic reflection. Today as before, it maintains a strong link with Geneva and what makes it special: the presence of various cultures.
