The Red House in the East Village is a very special place with an unique past. Swiss actress Linda Geiser took over the place in 1979 and started soon after to invite different Swiss artists to stay and work at a then new established studio space in the Red House. For over 35 years writers, visual artists, musicians, filmmakers, dancers and directors have come here to work, to mingle with the local artists, to get inspiration from being in New York. Today the Red House hosts three studios and apartments for Swiss artists.
Swiss based artists Lisa Biedlingmaier and Brigitte Lustenberger who stay at the Red House at present have curated a group show on the premises of the Red House. The Show brings together both Swiss and New York based, both emerging and established artists and emphasizes the spirit of the Red House to bring together two different art scenes.
With the friendly support from the Consulate General of Switzerland in New York.
