The Switch is an Artist-Run gallery created by Skoya Assemat-Tessandier. Opened in October 2016, in the Arroios neighbourhood of Lisbon, the reconverted grocery storefront presents quarterly solo and group exhibitions by young talents and emerging artists. The Switch aims to be Young – maybe. Contemporary – somewhat. Ground breaking – eventually. Cutting edge – why not. The only certainty is the perennial belief in fully disrespecting the established status quo of the Artists role in the current Art World. "We owe the galleries, the curators, the critics, nothing. Less than nothing, we especially donʼt owe them any courtesy. They owe us. They have rearranged the world to put themselves in front of us. They never asked for our permission, we will not even start asking for theirs." Between quarterly exhibitions, The Switch host shows, performances and events in the Cabinet de l’Art, as well as custom projects promoting collaboration across various creative industries.
Desde finales de 2014, han abierto más de 20 galerías de arte contemporáneo en Lisboa, siendo algunas las 10 lisboetas seleccionadas.
