In 2017, Saint-Gervais, at the foot of the Mont Blanc, invited 11 internationally renowned artists to create artwork for an eleven-storey carpark in the centre of town. The collection was commissioned by Hugues Chevallier. The following photo gallery (photos by Alan McCluskey – July 2019) gives a taste of their work. In 2018, the exhibition was extended by Frederick Battle who commissioned works by eight artists for more intimate spaces such as the swimming pool, the wall of the postoffice, the cablecar stations,… The eleven artists who took part in painting the carpark were: Elian Chali, Etienne de Fleurieu, Felipe Pantone, Jaw, Roids, SatOne, Sobekcis, Sten & Lex, Swiz, Zoer, Velvet.
