OUR CULTURED LANDSCAPE AND
ITS ECOLOGICAL IMPACT
The Verbier Art Summit is an interdisciplinary platform for innovation and change.
From 29 to 30 January 2021, the Summit will celebrate its fifth edition, reconnect with former speakers and continue an important theme:
Our Cultured Landscape And Its Ecological Impact
Jessica Morgan, our 2020 partnering museum director, reflects back on this theme, stating: “It took a virus to halt aspects of our culture that were destroying the environment. Now is the moment to reflect on how we can evolve in response to the questions posed at the 2020 Verbier Art Summit:
Can we learn from the light touch and holistic thinking of indigenous cultures that have cared for the land for generations?
Can we reassess the spaces, habits, structures, and systems of culture to find new ways to operate and new ways to experience?
Can we rethink our values?"
At the 2021 Summit, we will give voice to artists, thinkers, activists, and especially young people who are demanding a new way forward. The Summit will be both in-person and virtual, connecting new and former Summit artists and thinkers from all over the world.
