Light turns the city into a stage: “art meets city” in Baden-Baden presents the largest “luminarie” in Germany to date by the internationally celebrated Italian artist Marinella Senatore, who will still attract attention this year by major exhibitions in Paris and London.
Baden-Baden’s Kurgarten will once again become an open-air art gallery this summer. “art meets city” will be showing three works by the Italian artist Marinella Senatore from July 15 – an exhibition open to all and with free admission. Two of the works were especially created for the urban space in Baden-Baden. The centerpiece of the exhibition in Baden-Baden is a so-called “luminarie” installed on the façade of the Kurhaus, the largest work of art by Marinella Senatore exhibited in Germany to date.
Using the light, she creates a space that becomes a “universal square” for communities.
Involving the public is also a central theme to Marinella Senatore’s other two artworks. In the middle of the Kurhaus Kolonnaden, she prepares a stage for the people. According to the quote “Dance First, Think Later”, a creative space for citizens and visitors of Baden-Baden is created as part of “art meets city”.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the School of Narrative Dance, which counts a network of about 7 million participants across 23 countries. “art meets city” is the perfect occasion to celebrate the founding of this school for and with people on the opening weekend of the exhibition. For the entire duration of the exhibition (running until September 4), Marinella Senatore will hand over the stage to the community, providing associations, music groups, individuals, and dance groups with great creative freedom to build new collective outlets.
