If you’d like to find out more about Switzerland’s biggest contemporary art museum, here’s some dates for your diary:

 

  • Thursday 20th December 2012: LAST CHRISTMAS ! XMAS PARTY 2012 from 8pm to 5am

Villa Magica Records, Mamco & le Centre d’art have come together to organize this fantastic Xmas party at the SIP club in Plainpalais. The concept of this party was launched in 2003 by Genevan artist Sylvie Fleury, along with John M Armleder & Stéphane Armleder.

This year’s edition will have quite an iconoclastic theme: “La fin du monde”, this is a fun night out for grown-ups only and not the little ones ! The decor is by John M. Armleder and the music by Stéphane Armleder, with a mix of local and international DJs, including Orgasmic et Gerwald Rockenschaub.
