Engadin Art Talks
January 2018 – Gübelin as main partner of the Engadin Art Talks (E.A.T.) in Zuoz
For the third consecutive year, Gübelin is proud to support the Engadin Art Talks in Zuoz as main partner. The art and architecture forum provides a unique opportunity for artists, architects, creatives and culture enthusiasts to come together in an informal and intimate setting and exchange ideas and knowledge surrounded by Engadin's idyllic landscape.
This year's Engadin Art Talks, the art and architecture forum, explored the largely overlooked changes that have been happening in our countryside; from legendary land art projects, megastructures and urban agglomerations to museums in remote regions and the gentrification of the landscape and its inhabitants.
Artists, architects, researchers and creatives from all over the world presented their projects, ideas and visions under the headline "SIDE COUNTRY SIDE". This year's participants included Aric Chen, Kashef Chowdhury, Claudia Comte, Bice Curiger, Rem Koolhaas, Niklas Maak, Mai-Thu Perret, Emily Segal, Richard Sennett, Pacôme Thiellement, Adrián Villar Rojas among others.
As main partner, the family-owned House of Gübelin is delighted to encourage engaging dialogue and the sharing of knowledge and ideas around such an important Topic.
Art and the imparting of knowledge has always been at the essence of the House of Gübelin, and supporting craftsmanship from the initial spark of inspiration, through the selection of the finest gemstones to the magnificent jewellery, has been at the foundation of the family's work.
