Dear Friends of Art and the Engadin,
I am pleased to welcome you to the 6th edition of the St. Moritz Art Masters.
The art scene may be fast-moving, however, when designing our festival we have always tried to create a counterpoint to the hectic pace of our time: art and culture lovers are cordially invited to take their time and spend a few days viewing a great number of exciting exhibitions in unusual places, taking part in workshops and symposiums and engaging themselves in a relaxed way in an excellent programme set against the worldwide unique backdrop of the Engadin. Over the years we have developed the late-summer in this region to become a late-summer of art.
The charm of St. Moritz Art Masters is not least the result of an annual re-definition of exhibition sites and the presence of well over 100 international artists that the festival has presented over the years. This has led to an exchange between nations and culture which is especially valuable to us.
The fact that we combine and harmoniously integrate art and brands within the context of St. Moritz Art Masters has been beneficial to all parties concerned. Brands do not only act as sponsors, but become an important part of the festival by their commitment and their contributions. Without this co-operation the successful development of the festival would not have been possible.
Our heartfelt thanks go to everybody who has been with us from the start: the Engadin region, the galleries, institutions, collectors and individuals who have supported us. In the past six years we have come to know and appreciate the exceptional openness of the Engadin people towards unconventional ideas and projects.
It is only with this support from the very beginning that we have been able to reach the point where we are now: in the middle of the late-summer of art and culture in the Engadin.
Sincerely yours,Reiner Opoku
, Curator / Co-Founder St. Moritz Art Masters
