Villeneuve Biennale 2019

Villeneuve Biennale 2019 is a new artistic event of summer 2019.
Thanks to the municipality of Villeneuve, this new project was put in place to develop the tourism offer.
In partnership with  Montreux Biennale, and under the artistic direction of MAG, you will discover 10 artists specialized in wood carving.

10 international artists will create live for a week from July 29 to August 4, 2019 from 9am to 5pm each day.
At the end of this phase of creation, the artworks will be exhibited on the docks and in the village of Villeneuve until October 20th.

The wood is provided by the woodcutter of the municipality of Villeneuve.

A “green mobility” course is set up to visit Villeneuve Biennale and the Montreux Biennale, passing from one to the other by the platforms thanks to “Velospot” bike stations in Montreux (market place) and in Villeneuve (on the quays).

Here is the list of artists who will be present this summer in Villeneuve:

Alexandre Berlioz
Gadadhar Ojha
Hugo Beytrison
Hugues Grammont
Jonathan Bernard
Lara Steffe
Pavel Spelda
Vitali Panok
Yann Dumas
Anne Carlet

an off-site space in the “anciennes casernes” will feature small works by the symposium sculptors and will allow regional artists to exhibit their own works (painting, sculpture and photography).
Alvaro Querzoli will represent the regional artists by creating a sculpture near the off-site space.
