St. Moritz Art Masters 2013 focuses on China
The St. Moritz Art Masters, this Summer from the 23rd August until 1st September, will again make St. Moritz the Mecca of the Art and Culture scene. For a period of 10 days, it offers art lovers from around the world a wide range of contemporary art, presented at unusual locations, with the opportunity to discover them individually, whenever the mood arises. This year's focus is on China.
The St. Moritz Art Masters is an exclusive art platform featuring contemporary art with international classic highlights. Works by international contemporary artists will be exhibited as part of a "WALK OF ART", with the works of art being presented in the most unusual locations in and around St. Moritz. This year there will be special focus on current Chinese trends and developments. Discussions and events will provide an introduction to the culturally complex country of China.
The "WALK OF ART" art trail will again this year lead to approximately 30 locations in and around St. Moritz. International, as well as local origins, are reflected in the numerous artistic contributions. For example, from the USA, the legendary multi-media artist Robert Wilson and the painter Donald Baechler are represented. During the tour, visitors will encounter text sculptures, as well as works of concrete, steel and bronze.
The Engadin Art Talks (E.A.T.), discussing art and architecture, will be a part of the St. Moritz Art Masters for the 4th successive year. In moderated discussions, international personalities will speak of their own projects and of the Engadine mountains. The majority of the exhibitions, in particular the art exhibits in the WALK OF ART, are free and open daily.
