The Verbier Art Summit is an international platform that connects thought leaders to key figures in the art world to generate innovative ideas and drive social change.
Organised by Jessica Morgan, director of the Dia Art Foundation in New York, the 2020 Verbier Art Summit will focus on the theme "Resource Hungry: Our Cultured Landscape and its Ecological Impact". While bold structures are erected as monuments to culture, the impact on their surrounding ecologies has only been considered secondarily. This has raised urgent questions around the creation of these structures within the fields of art, design, architecture, and engineering. The fourth edition of the Verbier Art Summit will bring together leading thinkers to ask how we can envision a way forward in finding harmony between art, ecology and resources. The programme will feature talks by international art world figures as well as cultural events throughout Verbier.
