Organizer

The association Progetti d’arte in Val Bregaglia was founded in 2012 and is engaged in the promotion and realisation of contemporary art exhibitions, projects and events in Bergell. Until 2018, these art projects were each organised under a new name. From 2020, the art event will be called BIENNALE BREGAGLIA. As before, the social, historical and political structures of the valley are the focal points of the interventions. The association committee elects the curator, who is responsible for the concept, organisation, selection of the artistic positions and realisation.
