Information 

For the third consecutive year, the Berne-based non-profit organisation art+château is pleased to announce the launch of its next exhibition of contemporary art in an historic castle.

This year’s exhibition Beyond Baroque will take place at the stunning  Schloss Waldegg (Waldegg Castle, Canton of Solothurn), bringing together fourteen Swiss and international contemporary artists whose artistic practices demonstrate an intimate yet unexpected visual relation with the traditional formal vocabulary of the Baroque period. The artworks included in the exhibition highlight different aspects of the permanence and reinterpretation of the Baroque style in contemporary art and in today’s society, offering a fresh and surprising insight into this subject. Artworks of different media – drawings, paintings, videos, sculptures, installations, and a music performance – enter into dialogue with the architecture of Waldegg Castle and some of its most iconic, historic holdings.

The exhibition is conceived and curated by Dr. Valentina Locatelli. With Giulia Busetti acting as curatorial assistant.

 

Der Berner gemeinnützige Verein art+château freut sich, zum dritten Mal in Folge eine Ausstellung zeitgenössischer Kunst in einem historischen Schloss anzukündigen.

Die diesjährige Ausstellung Jenseits des Barocks findet im malerischen und imposanten Schloss Waldegg (Kanton Solothurn) statt und bringt vierzehn Solothurner, Schweizer und internationale zeitgenössische KünstlerInnen zusammen, die sich mit dem Formenvokabular des Barocks auseinandersetzen. Die künstlerischen Ansätze der ausgewählten Kunstschaffenden sind einzigartig und bieten Raum für eine freie und vielfältige Interpretation des Themas. Dadurch werden verschiedene Aspekte der Beständigkeit und Neuinterpretation des Barocks in der zeitgenössischen Kunst und in der heutigen Gesellschaft beleuchtet. Die Kunstwerke, die sowohl im Schloss als auch auf dem Schlossgelände ausgestellt werden, treten in einen Dialog mit der Architektur des Gebäudes und seiner Ausstattung.

Die Ausstellung ist konzipiert und kuratiert von Dr. Valentina Locatelli. Kuratorische Assistenz von Giulia Busetti.
