Running concurrently with the its Gilbert & George retrospective, Kunsthalle Zürich currently presents a group exhibition entitled Summer of Suspense (Sommer des Zögerns). Over the course of seven weeks 42 local artists develop a show that continually evolves and accumulates. Three days a week (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday) two artists come to Kunsthalle Zürich to install, perform or present a work, with a toast at 6 pm for those who stop by.
