Palazzo Trevisan degli Ulivi
Campo S. Agnese
Vaporetto stop: Zattere or Accademia
Built in the 15th century, the Palazzo Trevisan degli Ulivi has been the seat of the Swiss Consulate in Venice since 1966. The Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia and the Consulate General of Switzerland in Milan are jointly responsible for the cultural activities at the Palazzo, making it an important venue for Swiss culture in Venice. During the Art and Architecture Biennials, the Palazzo also hosts the official parallel programme of the Swiss contribution.
Pro Helvetia is offering a programme at the Palazzo Trevisan degli Ulivi to stimulate on-site experimentation and creation. The programme, which is intended to be multidisciplinary and is constantly evolving, will initially run until the end of 2022.
The first stage of the programme comprises a series of performances and concerts that will gather Swiss and Italian artists from all disciplines around a common language: contemporary music, whether it be jazz, electronic or experimental. These encounters focus on collaboration between the disciplines, from the research phase, spent together at the Palazzo, to performance, either on-site or in collaboration with local institutions.

Alongside the programme, Pro Helvetia is offering six thematic art residencies for Swiss cultural practitioners between autumn 2021 and summer 2022. Using the city of Venice as an anchor and inspiration, residencies are aimed at supporting artistic research on the city’s cultural and social situation today, its urban communities and the transformation processes taking place there. The one- or three-month residencies will allow artists to engage in dialogue and to build relationships with the communities of Venice through their artistic practice.
Selected artists to be announced soon
