Three decades on, Swiss Institute looks back in SInce 1986 at its legacy as one of New York’s most forward-thinking non-profit art spaces.
It relays for the first time the comprehensive history of the institution through its exhibitions of art, graphic design, performance art, dance, and architecture and its many homes, leading up to its current location at 38 Saint Marks Place in the East Village, which it unveiled in 2018.
Included in this volume are oral histories from key figures involved with SI, including past directors Ziba de Weck Ardalan, Arianne Braillard, Carin Kuoni, Annette Schindler, Marc-Olivier Wahler, and Gianni Jetzer, as well as current director Simon Castets.
Chronicling Swiss Institute’s past as it moves into the future, SInce 1986 is a must-read for those curious about the history of this important institution.
