AARAU.- At the end of the year the Aargauer Kunsthaus belongs largely to the Aargau artists. 52 artists accepted the invitation extended by the Aargauer Kunsthaus and the Aargauer Kuratorium to present their most recent work in the annual show. The resulting Auswahl 12 exhibition is a varied and stimulating survey of current art practices in the Canton of Aargau. Included in the exhibition is this year's guest artist, Anton Egloff. The annual exhibition provides an opportunity for local artists to present their latest work. Aargau artists can apply for inclusion in the exhibition as well as for work grants offered by the Aargauer Kuratorium. In October, two juries of experts, one selected by the Aargauer Kunsthaus and the other by the Aargauer Kuratorium, independently judged the submitted works. This year, a total of 231 artists have submitted their files. Out of these, 52 Aargau art practitioners were invited by the juries to present their works in the annual exhibition.

Guest Auswahl 12: Anton Egloff
This year’s guest artist has actively contributed to shaping the Swiss art scene since the 1960s, which is why he is not an unfamiliar name. As part of Auswahl 12, Anton Egloff (b. 1933) is showing works that were previously included in his major one-man show titled subskulptur at the Kunstmuseum Luzern in 2003. Anton Egloff has chosen to install his works in the atrium and the two interior spaces, which together form a longitudinal axis in the new museum annex. Thus the artist asserts the necessity of viewing his works as an aggregate installation, rather than as individual sculptural works. The common thematic thread linking the objects is that they address the subject of language. Anton Egloff has been pursuing this mode of operation ever since his artistic beginnings.

Over the course of the Auswahl show,the Aargauer Kunsthaus jury designates the guest artist for the next annual exhibition.
