The year 2020 will be long remembered in our history - to what depths and aftermath are still to be determined. 

The Verbier 3-D Foundation cancelled its annual artist residency due to the current circumstances, while remaining aware that a great pause can be the perfect landscape for a global reflection.

Rethinking about the Foundation and our work in the future, we wanted to learn from the artists whom with we have worked with in the past.

The Great Pause… 
is an impromptu outdoor exhibition featuring image and text-based work from the Foundation's past residency artists who were asked to send in their current reflection of the world we live in NOW. 

A world affected by the global pandemic of the Coronavirus.

The exhibition shares the voice of visual artists during this extraordinary time.

The Great Pause... will be FREE and open to the public from 27 June through 18 October 2020.

The artists' submitted work takes the form of billboards and cabins that are scattered in the outdoor landscape in the Swiss Alps at an altitude of 2300 meters above the town of Verbier. 

The 5 km long exhibition can be accessed by foot between La Croix de Coeur and Les Ruinettes and continues into the Verbier 3-D Foundation Sculpture Park.

A Walk and Open Discussion through the exhibition with the Foundation's Curator Alexa Jeanne Kusber and some of the participating artists will be offered on 11 July 2020.
