Born in 1957, a graduate of the École des Beaux-Arts de Lausanne, in 1987 Alain Huck was actively involved in the founding of Espace M/2 in Vevey. This is an exhibition space that he manages with several artists such as Jean Crotti, Robert Ireland, Jean-Luc Manz, Christian Messerli and Catherine Monney, his companion at the time. As an alternative structure, M/2 became an essential hub of the young art scene, setting up more than forty exhibitions in four years and promoting practices that up to that point were still absent in the Lake Geneva region.
Alain Huck was subsequently the guest of the Swiss Institute in Rome from 1989 to 1990, and then of the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris from 1997 to 1999. Among other distinctions, in 2013 he received the Grand Prix de la Fondation Vaudoise pour la Culture and the Pro Litteris prize. He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions and is represented by the Skopia Gallery in Geneva. He lives and works in Lausanne.
