This weekend marks the 20th anniversary of the Art Paris Art Fair and Switzerland is the guest of honor. On top of the numerous Swiss galleries and artists on view this year, a select number of artists from Switzerland will be the front-center spotlight outdoors, too. As part of their public art program, the fair is showing digital projections of video art on the facade of the Grand Palais, including the works of Swiss artists Camille Scherrer, Alan Bogana and Yves Netzhammer (who represented Switzerland at the 2007 Venice Biennale). Expect to see video art projections inspired by psychedelic dreams, French surrealism and checkered tablecloths lifted from the mountain culture of the Alps.
