ARTIST NEWS: Antony Cairns at Festival Images Vevey

Vevey, Switzerland | 08 - 30 September 2018

Every other year, during Switzerland’s visual arts biennale Festival Images Vevey, the picturesque town of Vevey becomes an outdoor museum of photography, presenting original installations and projects by international artists in unexpected places, such as on the facades of buildings, in parks and lakes, and also in unusual indoor venues. The next edition will be from 08 – 30 September 2018 and we are excited to announce that Antony Cairns will be taking part in this year’s festival, showing the project for which he was awarded the Images Vevey 2017/2018 Special Jury Prize. Cairns’ The Tale of Adam Earl Gordons (2018) is an art installation loosely based on the story of an inventor who disappeared while building a time machine in the early 1900s. His installation will be exhibited in the basement of the Théâtre de Verdure for the duration of the festival.
