Arcades des Arts Inaugural Exhibition
30 January - 25 March 2020

The Michelangelo Foundation for Creativity and Craftsmanship and the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie are proud to present its inaugural exhibition at the Arcades des Arts in Geneva. Open all year round, the Arcades des Arts is an exhibition space dedicated to showcasing fine craftsmanship.

The first exhibition reveals the unique savoir-faire of 15 European master artisans through a series of immersive film portraits, commissioned by Swiss filmmaker, Thibault Vallotton.
Visitors get a glimpse into the creative worlds of these master artisans, their workshops, age-old techniques, regional influences and individual narratives. By celebrating these “Singular Talents” the exhibition recognises the vital human role at the heart of these precious crafts, the beauty behind each human gesture and the value of a rich heritage of expertise.
