Elevation 1049

Gstaad, Switzerland

The Vinyl Factory partners with high-altitude arts festival Elevation 1049 in Gstaad. Taking place in the Swiss Alps for its second instalment in 2017, Elevation 1049 invites a selection of the world’s most exciting artists to create site-specific works and performances, which this year follows the theme of Avalanches.

Artists this year include VF-collaborator Rjoyi Ikeda, who is displaying his stunning test pattern installation, Douglas Gordon & Morgane Tschiember, Michaël Borremans, Thomas Schütte and Cecilia Bengolea, whose work with Jeremy Deller on Bom Bom’s Dream was one of the highlights of 2016’s Infinite Mix.

Curated by Neville Wakefield and Olympia Scarry and produced by Luma Foundation, Elevation 1049 takes place over six weeks from 3rd February to 19th March 2017.
