Swatch Art Peace Hotel celebrate its tenth anniversary. Following its presentation in Paris, Venice, Biel, Milano, and Locarno, “WELCOME! 10 years of Swatch Art Peace Hotel” arrives in Rome, at the MAXXI – Museo Nazionale delle Arti del XXI Secolo. The presentation narrates the first ten years of the artists’ residency of Swatch.
In November 2011, in Shanghai, the Swatch Art Peace Hotel opened its doors to artists from all over the world. Since then, the artists’ residence has welcomed more than 400 artists from 54 countries: different cultures, disciplines, generations have given rise to a kaleidoscope of ideas, talents, projects, and dreams. The project has turned into a springboard of energy and creativity towards a new, better, and different world.
Last year Swatch Art Peace Hotel supported the program of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Overcoming: Art Practices for the New Normal. Swatch is a longstanding member of the Guggenheim Intrapresae group and we are happy to celebrate this great milestone together.
