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. It is an independent initiative organised by a non-profit association in partnership with a rotating international museum director. The Summit's annual meeting takes place in January in an inspirational environment: Verbier, Switzerland.
The 2018 Summit took place from 18 to 20 January, discussing the theme More than Real. Art in the Digital Age by Daniel Birnbaum of Moderna Museet Stockholm. The 3-minute film above summarizes the vision of artists Ed Atkins, Douglas Coupland, Olafur Eliasson, Pamela Rosenkranz and Anicka Yi, Curator Karen Archey, Virtual Reality Expert Dado Valentic, Scholar & Curator Michelle Kuo, Research Professor Neuroengineering Paul Verschure and Museum Director Susanne Pfeffer.
