Monty Shadow, founder and mastermind of St. Moritz Art Masters, along with director Philipp Noller, saw in this legendary town the perfect setting to create a platform that encouraged such encounters – inspiring, rewarding, and unexpected.

Between August 25th. and September 3rd., the town of St. Moritz as well as Zuoz and Samedan will celebrate the “Best of SAM” and will showcase works by David Hockney (at the Italian blockbuster gallery Robilant + Voena), Roger Ballen (at the German blockbuster gallery Karsten Greve), an insight look into “the Art from the Pirelli World” with a thorough presentation of their Design objects as well as a 70 images, including a solo show by Peter Lindbergh,

taken from his three Pirelli calendars.

Furthermore, a solo show by Lenny Kravitz and many other exhibitions.

This year’s edition will be supplemented by an internationally selected group show in the historic setting of the Hotel Bernina 1865 in Samedan, a new group exhibition curated from the renowned Montblanc Cutting Edge Art Collection at the School House as well as an homage to the African Art Scene through a presentation by the Imibala Foundation, on view at the Badrutt’s Palace Hotel in the heart of St. Moritz.
