At the end of August, St. Moritz Art Masters will launch its 10thedition. Once more this annual art festival will be the highlight of the summer program in St. Moritz, not only offering an extensive art program, but also providing a multifaceted platform for creative and business encounters.

Press Conference: August 25th, 2017, at 2 pm l Hotel Kempinski, St. Moritz Bath With Monty Shadow (Founder), Philipp Noller (Director)
Walk of Art: August 25th, 2017, 2.30 – 4.00 pm | Start at Hotel Kempinski – Duration: August 25th – September 3rd, 2017

The idyllic resort in the Upper Engadine was predestined for the project: located at the geographical center of the dynamic economic region between Zurich, Munich, and Milan, St. Moritz with its breathtaking Alpine landscape has always been a meeting point for artists, intellectuals, athletes, business leaders, and bon vivants from around the world. Over the years, its unique blend of style and charm has drawn illustrious figures, from Nietzsche and Segantini to Chaplin and Churchill, allowing for unexpected encounters and the informal exchange of ideas and visions.

For these reasons, Monty Shadow, founder and mastermind of St. Moritz Art Masters, saw in this legendary town the perfect setting to create a platform that encouraged such encounters – inspiring, rewarding, and unexpected. “St. Moritz is a unique place – it’s no surprise to me that many artists have been intrigued by it. They continuously enrich the Engadine with their artworks as well as their intellectual influence.” From the very beginning, the aim of St. Moritz Art Masters has been to make this abundance of inspiration, vision, and artistic perspectives on global affairs the setting for creative conversation. This serves to explain the very international program of exhibits which has been carried out over the past 9 years.

Artistic Line-Up – 10th edition of SAM:
With its carefully curated cross-genre program, St. Moritz Art Masters will feature a fine selection of international art – famed artists as well as new talents – for its 10th anniversary. Highlights include the Paracelsus Forum, where selected paintings and video works by Serbian-born artist Vladimir Veličković will be shown.

Another highlight will be a solo show with 12 works by British painter David Hockney, on view at the renowned gallery Robilant + Voena. Representing the “Best of St. Moritz Art Masters” a poignant group exhibition of 10 outstanding works, also curated by Robilant + Voena, will be shown at the Protestant Church of St. Moritz. Artist names and works will be announced shortly.

Photography Highlights:

After celebrating the works of American photographer Albert Watson in 2016, St. Moritz Art Masters is proudly presenting another blockbuster artist this year: Peter Lindbergh. The Germanborn,
internationally celebrated fashion photographer will showcase a selection of his iconic work created in cooperation with Pirelli at Hotel Kempinski Grand Hotel Les Bains. At the same time, Galerie Karsten Greve will reintroduce the haunting black and white photographs of New York-born, South Africa-based artist Roger Ballen. With his distinctive visual narratives, Ballen has quickly risen to widespread acclaim.

Cartier Award: Flavio Manzoni
Italian designer Flavio Manzoni will be honored for his lifetime achievement with the Cartier Award on the opening weekend of St. Moritz Art Masters.

This year´s edition will be supplemented by an internationally selected group show in the historic setting of the Hotel Bernina in Samedan, as well as an homage to the African Art Scene through a presentation by the Imibala Foundation, on view at the Badrutt´s Palace Hotel in the heart of St. Moritz.
