Regionale – a trans-regional art festival – 27/11/201608/01/2017 

From approximately 600 dossiers centrally submitted 19 partner institutions can – as every year – select and invite artists from the region to take part in Regionale. It is in their role to make a representative selection of artists from France, Germany and Switzerland.
The annual Regionale exhibition is an attractive platform for a variety of artists and art institutions on the Upper Rhine. It intends to act as a mirror for current happenings, the epitome of contradictions, the diversity, for the pleasurable and competitive coming-together of artists, event organisers and the public.
