Salon des artistes indépendants et des créateurs at the Geneva Palexpo – November 15th – 18th 2012

Le Salon des artistes indépendants et des créateurs‘ will open with an international exhibition by Francesco Arese Visconti, Head of the Photography Department at Webster University Geneva, based upon his current research project, “New World: Stories of African Immigration and Integration in Switzerland.”

Visconti’s collection of portraits and interviews document the story of the long and often complicated process of Swiss immigration. The portraits capture immigrants in both their home and professional environments, allowing the contexts to illustrate the success and limitations of their integration into Swiss culture.

The exhibition will form part of the yearly Fall Fair, ‘Les Automnales‘ which brings together many cultural highlights from the Geneva region.

“New World: Stories of African Immigration and Integration in Switzerland” will be published in December 2012 by AION Editions, based in Florence.

Date:
15 Nov – 18 Nov
