By transforming the Summit into a publication, the global dialogue continues. Designed by Irma Boom, the 2017 SUMMIT BOOK launched at Frieze Art Fair in London on 4 October and is now available. This book is the outcome of the 2017 Verbier Art Summit, organized in cooperation with Beatrix Ruf and the curatorial team at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. By sharing the content of the Summit through this publication the global dialogue continues.
The theme of the Verbier Art Summit and this accompanying publication, SIZE MATTERS! (DE)GROWTH OF THE 21ST CENTURY ART MUSEUM has been chosen by Beatrix Ruf. It is based on her personal experiences with the transformations of these institutes and their corresponding increase in scale, but also about issues that every museum is faced with, struggles with, reflects on how to address, and considers in a self-critical way.
