A Hole In The Alps

DIG collective, A Hole in The Alps

About this time each August, I become nostalgic for the Swiss Alps. I was fortunate to have spent most of the month one year camping and hiking around Switzerland. And one of my favorite areas was the less touristed valleys and villages of the Graubünden. So, I was particularly excited to hear about this very cool biennial art event in the region.

Spread across the stunning Safiental Valley in the Swiss Canton Graubünden, Art Safiental is the second annual edition of an ambitious public outdoor exhibition. Exploring the theme “horizontal-vertical” this year, the show’s artworks aim to reconceptualize the Land Art of the 20th century.

Art Safiental links the widely spread pieces through hiking trails and public transportation. Running through October of this year, the specific settings for the installations can be located on a free map.
