Gallery for classic and contemporary photography

The gallery Bildhalle, founded by Mirjam Cavegn in 2013, deliberately takes on the responsibility of a long-standing Swiss tradition regarding photography and its distribution as an artistic medium. Thus, it represents outstanding classic and contemporary positions with the necessary consequence. 

In the interplay between selected established photographers of the 20th Century and those of a younger generation that aims to keep extending the medium, Mirjam Cavegn shapes an ambitious gallery program with the objective to positively influence the reception and recognition of artistic photography through solo and group exhibitions as well as international art fair participations. 

Her previous extensive experiences in developing photo books for an international publishing house and as photo editor for various media companies have helped Mirjam Cavegn as much with the commercially successful implementation of her gallery program as did her confident instincts and her deep fascination with photography in general. She presents the medium in a new light at her beautiful space at Zurich’s Stauffacherquai and, in just a few years, has established Bildhalle has one of today’s most respected galleries for photography in Switzerland.

I would love to be informed about future projects.
