Due to ongoing proceedings, the «Art Scene» event in Zurich cannot take place in 2022 until further notice.
In November 2021, the city of Zurich selected an external sponsor for the further development and one-off implementation of the “Art Scene” exhibition after a public call for tenders.
Due to ongoing proceedings, the event cannot take place until further notice. Since the early 1970s, there has been an unjudged art exhibition “Art Scene” in the city of Zurich every four to six years.
The aim of the event is to create an accessible exhibition opportunity for artists living in the city, which appeals to as wide an audience as possible and promotes its exchange with the art scene.
External sponsorship for the conceptual further development
In autumn 2021, following a public call for tenders and based on a jury recommendation, the City of Zurich appointed an external sponsor for the further conceptual development and implementation of the event in 2022 (media release of November 11, 2021).
A competitor has taken legal action in connection with this selection of sponsorship. Since the procedure is pending, the sponsorship determined by the city cannot advance its work.
The event can therefore not take place in 2022. The City of Zurich will provide information on how to proceed once the procedure has been completed.
