Bicentenaire de la Caisse d’Epargne Riviera
Cabanes de la Riviera
Caisse d’Epargne Riviera is one of the oldest active banks in Switzerland. Ensconced in the Vaud Riviera, this institution has supported several generations in helping their housing plans come to fruition.
For its bicentenary in 2014, Caisse d’Epargne Riviera produced Cabanes de la Riviera, an exhibition presenting four cabins scattered in the town of Vevey. Under Juri Steiner’s curatorship, each was designed and produced by Swiss artists and architects from the Riviera. In order for this exhibition to integrate the Festival Images, Caisse d’Epargne Riviera has coproduced the monumental piece by Leandro Erlich, presented in the Salle del Castillo. In fact, Bâtiment falls within the imaginary representation of a a huge cabin built inside the brand new municipal hall, by definition a house for all Veveysans.
