Festival Images Vevey is the first and main biennale of visual arts in Switzerland. Every two years, it presents original photographic exhibitions, outdoors in the streets and the parks of Vevey as well as indoors in unusual venues, and features collaborations with people who ensure Vevey’s status as a “City of Images” all year round.
From 8 to 30 September 2018, based on the theme Extravaganza. Out of the Ordinary, visitors will get to discover, free of charge, some sixty indoor and outdoor projects, some in monumental format, as well as the works produced thanks to Grand Prix Images Vevey 2017/2018.
By showcasing established artists next to young talent, Festival Images’ programme satisfies the curiosity of both specialists and the general public. The artistic projects on display invite visitors to experience images in a novel way through out-of-the-ordinary installations and scenography.
A feature of Festival Images Vevey is to custom design its exhibitions in order to strike the perfect balance between the works and the place in which they are exhibited, whether on museum walls, in a former prison, on monumental facades or in a disused phone booth.
