L’APPARTEMENT – ESPACE IMAGES VEVEY: A NEW GATEWAY TO THE FESTIVAL

Images Vevey invites visitors to explore its new permanent art space in the heart of Vevey’s train station, formerly serving as railway workers’ housing. L’Appartement – Espace Images Vevey is showcasing projects by four internationally renowned artists: Bertien van Manen, Alec Soth, Gillian Wearing and Carmen Winant.

As is the custom every two years, there is great suspense as to which colossal photograph Images Vevey has selected to entirely cover the frontage of a building, opposite the train station. This edition, let's be teleported to the legendary Milan Cathedral, a photograph taken by Thomas Struth in 1998, printed on a 500 m2 canvas. This famous German photographer invites the festival goers to embark on a novel itinerary to discover four of his masterpieces displayed on distinctive buildings around the town of Vevey.
