The annual Verbier Art Summit connects thought leaders to key figures in the art world and creates a platform for discourse, innovation and change in a non-transactional context. The Summit is proud to announce its 2018 partnership with museum director Daniel Birnbaum of Moderna Museet, Stockholm.

The 2018 edition revolves around the theme MORE THAN REAL. ART IN THE DIGITAL AGE.

This year, Verbier Art Summit will welcome a diverse group of keynote speakers to stimulate meaningful dialogue on the topic of Art in the Digital Age. The Summit will involve international artists such as Olafur Eliasson, Ed Atkins, Pamela Rosenkranz and Anicka Yi, writers Douglas Coupland and Michelle Kuo, neuroscientist Paul Verschure and art professor Alexander Nagel. The multidisciplinary perspective of the different keynote speakers makes the Verbier Art Summit a unique event.

The gardens are open for a stroll through the Sculpture Park, and to see the Gallo-Roman remains. The main archeological relics discovered during the excavations in Martigny are in exhibition at the Gallo-Roman Museum, and some fifty vintage cars can be seen in the Automobile Museum.
