Galerie Sebastien Bertrand – Art with a fresh eye

While Geneva may be known for its classic arts, it also has its fair share of contemporary art galleries – if you know where to look. One of the galleries with the freshest stable of young contemporary artists is the Galerie Sebastien Bertrand.

Bertrand, who founded and runs the gallery, is a young Genevan who wanted to reinvigorate Geneva’s art scene with work by contemporary artists with an edge, from here and abroad. Works range from paintings to installations, from pop art, to abstract, to hyperrealism, and always combine technical skill with a marked perspective on the society and world of today, flirting with the provocative. What sets this gallery aside from others is that Bertrand has no fear in showing thought provoking works that stretch open your mind. Like it or not, he will have set you up for a great dinnertime conversation.

After a summer break, this gallery reopened on 1 September at both its locations, Gallery 1 at rue du Simplon 16 in Eaux-Vives, and Gallery 2 at rue de l’Eveché 1 in the Old Town. Watch this space for news on upcoming shows.
