RENDEZ-VOUS D’ARTISTES Serval & Kalonji at the museum

Quite a few people make themselves comfortable in front of a painting or a sculpture and let their thoughts and ideas wander onto a small notebook in the form of a drawing…

Starting on the 17th of April, two Genevan artists, Serval and Jean-Philippe Kalonji will ritualize these moments of creation, by working one Sunday every month in the Musée d’art et d’histoire. As graffiti artist and illustrator respectively, they are both enamored with visual arts and painting in particular. Regulars at the Musée d’art et d’histoire, they have been coming for years to study and find inspiration. With Rendez-vous d’artistes, they take their relationship with the museum a step further by sharing their artistic research in the heart of the museum’s collections.

On the first Sunday of every month, from April to December, Serval and Kalonji will have work sessions where they question themselves, elaborate and create new works in the company of other artists and specialists of numerous backgrounds. The visitors of the museum are invited to share these moments and interact with the artists, as the museum’s spaces become a space dedicated to creation.

Rendez-vous d’artistes not only takes place within the framework of the Year of Illustration organized by the City of Geneva, but also following the Musée d’art et d’histoire’s desire to open its doors and create bridges with the contemporary
art scene. The project also aims to maintain the tradition of the museum as a veritable school of the arts : a place where the artworks exhibited serve as both inspiration and model to artists and craftsmen.
