Aus rendezvous des amis – SaarArt
Moderne Galerie des Saarlandmuseums, Saarbrücken, DE
16.06.2023 – 17.09.2023
In the context of the Élysée Year 2023 under the motto Au rendez-vous des amis, SaarART 2023 will take place for the first time as a cross-border art project.
From June 16 to September 17, 2023, it will be on display at 11 Saarland art locations.
The show, conceived by curator Dr. Andrea Jahn (head of art and cultural studies at the Stiftung Saarländischer Kulturbesitz), will look beyond the Saarland to the current art scene in the greater region, presenting not only Saarland artists but also artists from Lorraine and Luxembourg.
From over 200 applications, a jury of three from Saarbrücken, Metz and Luxembourg selected 62 positions that address specific themes. The examination of "identity", "isolation" and "transience" was particularly in the focus of artistic attention in the years of the pandemic. Together with a critical look at the definition and construction of "beauty," it forms the content framework for an exhibition that will develop its own character at each of the participating institutions - with numerous site-specific works and installations.
