The funding programme Impact supports exhibitors which presents an artist who has not yet had a physical solo exhibition outside of their home country. We would like to thank the Eckenstein-Geigy Foundation for supporting 11 galleries and project spaces.
The 2020 Helvetia Art Prize goes to Tiphanie Kim Mall (*1987). She is a graduate of the Master’s in Fine Arts at FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel. The Helvetia Art Prize is an award for young artists and includes prize money of 15,000 francs and the possibility to stage a solo exhibition at Liste Art Fair Basel. For her latest film work House Cat (2020), which is being shown at the Plattform 20 exhibition at the Kunsthalle Fribourg Fri Art and at Liste Art Fair Basel in 2021, Tiphanie Kim Mall attached a camera to her cat’s collar.
