Galerie Tschudi promotes international and Swiss contemporary art, showcasing established artists and newcomers alike. The Gallery holds solo and group shows, works with international institutions, participates in international art fairs, and publishes art catalogues and artists’ monographs. Galerie Tschudi was founded in Glarus 1985 by Ruedi Tschudi (6.6.1940–4.1.2019) and Elsbeth Bisig. In December 2002 they opened a second Gallery in Zuoz/Engadin (approx. 20 min. by car from St.Moritz) which became the main Gallery in 2005. Twenty years later, Galerie Tschudi is taking a step from the periphery into the urban environment, where it opened another dependence in Zurich’s new gallery cluster in September 2022.
In the thirty-seven years since founding Galerie Tschudi, the gallery has pursued a consistent program for years, primarily with most renowned representatives of Minimal Art, Land Art, and Arte Povera such as Carl Andre, Alan Charlton, Richard Long, Mario Merz and Hamish Fulton. The gallery’s programming was continuously widened to include the work of artists such as Bethan Huws, Niele Toroni, Callum Innes, Dan Walsh, Su-Mei Tse, Kimsooja, Not Vital, Julian Charrière, Andrea Büttner, Kemang Wa Lehulere, Katie Paterson and Augustas Serapinas.
