Bad RagARTz and Klosters Music
People who are open to the charms of music are usually also sensitive to the visual arts. And those who love art also love music. In order to bring these two strands together in their entirety across the regions, Klosters Music and the Swiss Triennial of Sculpture Bad RagARTz have come together this summer to deliver two outstanding events. In keeping with the motto of this year’s Bad RagARTz: “Distance sharpens the eye and art creates closeness”. And this “closeness” is important, reports Rolf Hohmeister: “I am passionate about connecting people and generations through culture. And these connections must go far beyond the regions, Hohmeister continues. Because: “In this way, we deepen people’s cultural awareness.
But not only this: We mutually strengthen our positions and our events. We know that shared enjoyment brings a range of benefits. We can look forward to this shared enjoyment again on 2 July in Bad Ragaz at the preview of Klosters Music as part of the jointly organised concert “Second Home”. While Klosters Music moves into the beautiful Rhine landscape, Bad RagARTz is starting out in the imposing mountain world of Klosters: During the summer concerts, guests of Klosters Music can expect a world-class artistic surprise in the atelier of Klosters sculptor Christian Bolt.
Vernissage for the exhibition of prints by Le Corbusier at Atelier Bolt
A world-class artistic surprise awaits visitors to this year’s Klosters Music: as part of the cooperation with the Swiss Triennial Festival of Sculpture, Bad RagARTz, an exhibition of important prints by the world-famous architect, artist and designer Le Corbusier (1887-1965) will be on display in Christian Bolt’s studio in Klosters from 31 July to 31 October. The prints were edited by Heidi Weber in Zurich in the early 1960s and commissioned in Paris from the famous lithographer Fernand Mourlot. The exhibition of works from the permanent collection of the Swiss Triennial Festival of Sculpture Foundation – a donation by Ms Weber – offers a rare opportunity to experience various self-contained graphic work cycles by Le Corbusier in their entirety.
opening hours: Monday to Friday 10am – 12am / 2pm – 5pm, or by prior agreement by telephone at +41 79 715 43 83
Address: Atelier Bolt, Doggilochstrasse 121, Klosters
Kunst und Musik: Ein Stelldichein mit Klasse
On 2 July 2021, the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz will host the additional concert “Second Home”. The concert is actually the start of the collaboration between Klosters Music and the Swiss Triennial of Sculpture. We look forward to seeing the wonderful cellist Sol Gabetta and the outstanding pianist Kristian Bezuidenhout, who will perform sonatas for cello and piano by Mendelssohn and Brahms. More information can be found here.
Around 450 works by 83 artists from Switzerland and all over the world invite you to take an art walk that is as stimulating as it is relaxing through the extensive parks of the St. Gallen spa town of Bad Ragaz: a day at Europe’s largest open-air exhibition, which is free of charge, is well worth it.
