Biennale Bregaglia Bondo 2024


The next BIENNALE BREGAGLIA 2024, will take place from 2 June to 28 September 2024. This third edition explores the theme «Architecture and Gardens». After an open dialogue with the local population, the curator chose the Swiss village of Bondo as the main venue for the exhibition. An international selection committee has choosen 10 site-specific projects of national and international artistic positions. Besides Bondo, the entire valley beyond the Swiss border—from Isola (CH) to Chiavenna (IT)—will be included and connected through an interdisciplinary accompanying programme.

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.


Misia Bernasconi (*1988) completed the B. A. in Art History, Classical Archaeology and Theory and History of Photography at the University of Zurich and the M. A. in Art History with specialisation in Museology and Exhibitions with a focus on Architectural History at the University of Bern. She has gained professional experience as a research assistant for the Federal Office of Culture (FOC) at the Vincenzo Vela Museum in Ligornetto (TI) (2019–2021), at the Federal Art Collections in Bern (2016–2020), as co-curator with Luciano Fasciati for the Grison associations Art-Public Chur (2019) and Progetti d'arte in Val Bregaglia (2018), and as a research volunteer at the Bündner Kunstmuseum Chur (2017). She is member of scientific board of the Vereinigung der Kunsthistorikerinnen und Kunsthistoriker (VKKS) der Schweiz.
