Festival Images Vevey is Switzerland’s first visual arts biennale. Every other year, the festival features unique large-scale photography exhibitions in the streets of Vevey as well as a series of exhibitions in indoor venues, and presents the winning project of the international photography competition Grand Prix Images Vevey.
For the fifth time under its current guise, Festival Images will transform Vevey into a real ‘city of images’ from 10 September to 2 October. Confirming its status as Switzerland’s first Biennale of visual arts, the Festival will present original installations by international artists and up-and-coming talents in unexpected places, indoors and outdoors, providing a genuine large-scale, free of charge photographic experience for all visitors.
Based on the theme of ‘immersion’, visitors will get to discover, free of charge, some fifty indoor and outdoor projects, some in monumental format, by such artists as Hans-Peter Feldmann, James Casebere, Mat Collishaw, Christian Jankowski, Martin Parr, Laurie Simmons, Pierre et Gilles, Stephen Gill, Alec Soth, Simon Roberts, Chema Madoz and Guido Mocafico.
My series The Last Moment will be shown on billboards outside the Gare de Vevey.
Dates: 10 September – 2 October 2016
Opening: Saturday 10 September
Opening hours for indoor exhibitions: Every day, 11:00-19:00
Festival Images is an outdoor photography festival, which encourages you to walk around the city to discover installations on walls, in streets and in parks.
The exhibition map will be available once the programme has been announced.
