On the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the Helvetia Art Prize (formerly Nationale Suisse Art Prize), Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen is organizing a group exhibition of Swiss artists in which prizewinners from previous years will play a leading role. These include Alois Godinat (2006), Florian Germann (2009), Kathrin Affentranger (2012) and Gina Proenza in 2018. The exhibition and the anniversary offer the opportunity to address topics such as the risky choice of an artistic career or forms of art promotion for the youngest generation, but also to discuss the cooperation between private sponsors, schools and art institutions within this exhibition. A program of performances, discussions and collaborations will round off the project and contribute to creating a picture of today's Swiss art scene.
