TRIENNALE of contemporary art Valais/Wallis 2014
After the editions of 2007 und 2011 the third edition will take place in 2014. This edition presents a new exhibition format, which originates from spatial and regional circumstances. The TRIENNALE 2014 aims to give special attention to selected disused industrial and military complexes and other interesting sites in the Valais/Wallis, such as an old military airport, a water dam, an old prison and a power station. All these locations permit sophisticated artistic interventions. For these four main sites, international curators have been invited. They will re-enact these exceptional locations. Each curator will personally select a certain number of artistic positions and projects with national or international impact. Besides these unconventional spots, the TRIENNALE 2014 will also take place in the local museums and galleries. The TRIENNALE extends its activities from Brig to Monthey and involves the most important institutions of contemporary art in Valais/Wallis.

The curators
Heinrich Gartentor (curator Turtmann)
Helen Hirsch (curator Ancien Pénitencier Sion)
Raffael Dörig (curator Belle Usine Fully)

The TRIENNALE Valais/Wallis of contemporary art was founded in 2007 by 14 art institutions*, active in the area between Brig and Monthey in Southern Switzerland. The aim of the association is to bring broader attention to contemporary art and to stimulate professional cooperation between the linguistic regions of Switzerland and the rest of Europe. The TRIENNALE Valais/Wallis also intends to further expand networks, in particular by building relationships with institutions beyond the Alps. The charter of the Association for Contemporary Art Valais stipulates to better exploit the different strengths of member institutions and contacts. The club operates on the basis of collegiality. The operational office, which is led by the President of the Association, structures and guides the decision-making processes of the organization.
