Swiss InstituteNew York
Founded in 1986, Swiss Institute (SI) is one of New York's key non-profit cultural institutions. Open to the public free of charge, it provides a significant forum for contemporary cultural dialogue between Switzerland, Europe, and the United States. Swiss Institute produces five major exhibitions per year with approximately thirty special educational and social events. Recent highlights include solo or duo exhibitions of emerging artists including Allyson Vieira, Pamela Rosenkranz, Nikolas Gambaroff and Nicolas Party; shows presenting specific bodies of work by celebrated artists such as John Armleder or Roman Signer; as well as rediscoveries of overlooked figures including Karlheinz Weinberger and Heidi Bucher. Swiss Institute’s artistic program is supported by institutional and corporate sponsors as well as the generosity of individuals. Proceeds from the sale of its limited editions directly support its unique contribution to New York's cultural landscape.
