Zurich’s first “ART INSIDE” vernissage will open inside the city’s lakeside Baur au Lac's Salon 1 & 2 on October 7, 2013, from 5-7pm. “ART INSIDE” will be the twelfth art exhibition at the legendary Swiss hotel which is being solely curated by Gigi Kracht, wife of Andrea Kracht, the Baur au Lac’s sixth-generation owner. Unlike Kracht’s previous Art In The Park exhibitions, all of which were held in the hotel’s private park and dedicated to legendary sculptors, ART INSIDE will take place inside the property.

“Women are increasingly establishing a commanding presence on the international art scene,” says Kracht. “I am delighted to provide a platform in my own hometown for this very first all-female exhibition!

The eleven established and up-and-coming artists are: Tülin Onat, Ekin Onat, Pemra Aksoy, Asli Ozok from Turkey; Catherine Starkman and Ewa Bathelier from France; Joanna Borkowska from Poland; Sara Lucas from Italy; Laura Nylott Manning, Sarah Ashley Longshore, Tlisza Jaurique from the USA.
