State of the Art

Whistler Conference Centre. 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm daily. TELUS World Ski and Snowboard Festival is all about the riding, the free concerts, the nightlife and for the discerning palate, the art. At State of the Art, all pillars of the WSSF come together to provide a platform for mountain town inspiration. There are no rules and this is not a paint-inside-the-lines event. Sub-cultures and anti-movements are celebrated and portrayed in gritty and thought-provoking mediums. Invited artists come from far and wide to create a community of urban street and snow ingenuity, and push the boundaries of the State of the Art. There’s no entry fee, and you can stroll around the Grand Foyer of the Whistler Conference Centre, immerse yourself in artistic talent, rub shoulders with the who’s who of the creative world and even pick up a one-of-a-kind piece for yourself.


Gallery Open: 12pm – 6pm daily | 8pm – late on gala ticketed nights
