ITS Artwork Award

Art Peace Hotel
Since its creation in 1983, conceived as a universal, democratic object, Swatch has thrived on diversity, multiplicity, dynamism, inclusion and positive energies that intertwine, feed on each other and multiply.
Inspired by the same principles, the Swatch Art Peace Hotel opened in Shanghai in 2011: in the heart of the most dynamic and vibrant metropolis in China, a unique space in terms of vision, dimensions, style and capacity, open to artists of all generations, from all countries and all disciplines.
Of the 450+ artists that have been hosted, six are winners of ITS Artwork in previous editions of the contest.
This year, Swatch Art Peace Hotel has selected 6 finalists from the ITS Contest 2022 applicants, and invited them to unleash their artistic soul, creating an artwork that represents who they are and how they feel, establishing a dialogue with the viewer in search of inspiration and emotions, ready to be challenged or enchanted, and ideally looking to know more about them.
Their artworks are a manifesto of their beliefs, meant to convey their vision, their message, attitude and hopes. Art can defeat time, can make us travel, can become part of us.
