The Museum Franz Gertsch participates for the first time in the annual exhibition of the cantons of Bern and Jura. The exhibition takes place in the cabinet.
The Cantonale Berne Jura is an association of eleven exhibition institutions that present the artistic work of the cantons of Berne and Jura in a joint annual exhibition. The cross-cantonal exhibition has been held annually since 2011 and has been organized and supported by the Cantonale association since 2012.
Born out of the tradition of regional Christmas exhibitions, the Cantonale Berne Jura makes an important contribution to regional and national art promotion. It strengthens the network of exhibition institutions active in the two cantons and has established itself as a versatile platform for artists and the public.
From December 2022 to January 2023, the Cantonale Berne Jura will showcase refreshing, uncompromising, magnificent, ingeniously simple and intoxicatingly complex works by artists from the cantons of Berne and Jura. The exhibitions in eleven art institutions form an expressive platform of current artistic creation of supra-regional importance. The aim of the Cantonale is to present a broad spectrum of artistic positions and to strive for the best possible quality of the respective exhibitions.
All professional artists who reside or work in either the Canton of Bern or the Canton of Jura, or who belong to one of the two art scenes, are eligible to participate. In a two-stage jurying process, the respective expert juries of the institutions select the presented positions from the submitted dossiers - with regard to the spatial conditions as well as to the best possible quality of the exhibitions.
A dense supporting program consisting of guided tours, discussions with the artists and workshops for children and young people will enable an in-depth examination of the exhibitions. A common admission pass for all institutions can be obtained at the respective exhibition box offices and enables a low-cost visit to all houses.
