Exhibitionin Zürich / Switzerland
Mai 36 Galerie presents the exhibition “Small is beautiful: (A)rtschwager to (Z)augg” on the 1st floor of the Mai 36 townhouse at Rämistrasse 37.
In contrast to the “bigger is better” concept of western economics, the phrase “small is beautiful” is taken from one of the first books on politics, by economist E.F. Schumacher. The book “Small is beautiful” was a radical challenge to the 20th century’s way of thinking economically – with what the author described as “gigantism”. The exhibition champions a selection of exquisite small and beautiful artworks made by four generation of artists over the course of the last decades. In the three rooms on the 1st floor of the Mai 36 townhouse we group the various works in three sections: Talking Heads (Portraits), Abstract Thinking and Artist’s Artist.
