(re)connecting.earth (02) - Beyond Water - Geneva




Outdoor artworks on the banks of Lake Geneva and a month-long programme of activities in partnership with scientific and environmental associations to connect with the lake and its biodiversity.



For its second edition, the Biennale de l'Art et de la Nature Urbaine (re)connecting.earth focuses on a new natural element of Geneva's urban environment: Lake Geneva. This year, in collaboration with artists and scientists, the Biennale focuses on the theme of water and biodiversity around the lake.

Organized in partnership with arts and environmental associations and institutions, the biennial will showcase works of art created by 25 local and international artists. In addition to the public art exhibition, a 30-day program will be offered to visitors, including workshops, performances, screenings and lectures.

The Biennale's itinerary unfolds around the harbor of Geneva, with art installations that can be reached in less than five minutes on foot from the harbors of the "Geneva Seagulls". While exploring these works of art, visitors will also discover sites of incredible biodiversity, such as Pointe à la Bise and Lac des Vernes.

As part of the event, a competition for young artists will also be held, providing a showcase for emerging talents in the field of environmental art.
