Olivier Mosset (born in 1944, based in Tucson) is a major figure on both the Swiss and international art scene. Although mainly known for his abstract geometrical painting, Mosset explores other areas in art as well. The Swiss Cultural Center has invited him to imagine a type of exhibition he hasn’t had the opportunity to realize until now. The result is a show comprising works—painting, sculpture, installation, an automobile, performance, film—done in collaboration with other artists. Several pieces have been produced specifically for this event.

Works from John Armleder, Marie-Agnès Gillot, Amy Granat & Drew Heitzler, Madjid Hakimi, Jacob Kassay, Alix Lambert, Bertrand Lavier, Olivier Mosset, Mai-Thu Perret, Jeffrey Schad & Vincent Szarek

Olivier Mosset will join Marc-Olivier Wahler for a conference Tuesday 21 January at 8pm.

The double film T.S.O.Y.W., 2007, 200 minutes, directed by Amy Granat & Drew Heitzler, and produced by Olivier Mosset, will be shown on 8 March at 6pm, with Olivier Mosset at Centre Pompidou. This screening is part of the Nouveau Festival.

There will be a performance by John Armleder and Olivier Mosset. Date and venue to be announced.
