The exhibition 2020
This summer, the art trails | Vias d´art Pontresina will take place for the fifth time. Even though it was not clear until well into the spring how exactly the event would take place due to the special circumstances, the organizers were never in any doubt that everything would be done - in accordance with the official regulations, of course - to make the art experience and exchange possible in the public space along Via Maistra in Pontresina.
"Publication on beauty..." - is a title that could not have been chosen better for these special times. By shutting down public life with all its distractions and temptations, many people may have sharpened their view of what is essential, the joy even of small things and the grateful feeling of beauty in all its facets, the inner peace and readiness to experience and enjoy it. Often just where you wouldn´t expect it. And this is exactly what this year´s art trails follow, to which 12 artists/artist couples from Graubünden - and for the first time from French-speaking Switzerland - were invited.
The concrete examination of the concept of beauty was left to the artists and their interventions are presented in a variety of ways. With their art they illuminate the connection between beauty and language, lightness, diversity of fauna, delusion, Engadine sky blue, sound images and many other aspects that are to be discovered and experienced. Each of the participants, all of whom have attracted attention with impressive works in recent years or have been awarded important prizes, will play at two locations and show their inspirations on the subject of beauty.
