Artist Lecture by Marinella Senatore, Rome, IT
The artist Marinella Senatore (1977 Cava de’ Tirreni, IT—Rom, IT and Paris, FR) will talk about her artistic work in a lecture on the occasion of her participation in the exhibition Bodies–Cities. Collections and Excursions.
Senatore has for years been focusing, with strong commitment, on the themes of citizenship, individual and collective limelight and social livability, in the belief that art may unleash a surge of consciousness in the dialectic between individual and society. Performances are central to her practice, often imbued with music, dance and other forms of physical expression capable of conveying a sense of vitality, sharing, inclusion and emancipation.
In 2013, the artist founded The School of Narrative Dance, a nomadic, free school focused on non-hierarchical learning. The multidisciplinary school, conceived of as an alternative training ground, offers free workshops engaging local groups and public activations, where Senatore and participants together orchestrate narratives, tracing new connections between contemporary relations.
Marinella Senatore is a multimedia artist currently based in Rome and Paris who creates participatory projects. Inspired by protest, public ceremonies, civic rituals, and mass public events, Senatore focuses on collective activities and the public forum. Trained in music, fine arts, and film, she uses a broad spectrum of media.
Senatore’s work has been exhibited internationally at MANIFESTA 12, Palermo; Centre Pompidou, Paris; MAXXI Museum, Rome; Queens Museum, New York; Kunsthaus Zurich; Castello di Rivoli, Turin; Kunsthalle, Sankt Gallen; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; High Line, New York; Madre Museum, Naples; Serpentine Gallery, London; Institute for Contemporary Art at Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA; Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo, Madrid; Palazzo Grassi, Venice; Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; et al.
