Presentation of SaarART 2023 – Au rendez-vous des amis (DE)

Luxembourg Art Week, Conference Area

The speakers will present the exhibitions scheduled for 2023 and discuss plans of a major supra-regional art exhibition across the three countries.

From 16 June to 17 September 2023, SaarART 2023 – Au rendez-vous des amis will survey the artistic trends in Saarland. Based on a series of friendly encounters (hence the title of the exhibition) and following a cross-border approach, it will present artists from Saarland but also from Lorraine and Luxembourg. Bringing together emerging and established artists whose works revolve around identity, isolation, beauty and the ephemeral, the exhibitions will be accompanied by a diverse and interactive programme of events. This exchange between the artistic centres Berlin, Saarbrücken, Metz and Luxembourg aims to strengthen cooperation between German- and French-speaking artists by promoting the emergence of new artistic networks.

Exhibition venues: Moderne Galerie – Saarlandmuseum, Stadtgalerie Saarbrücken, Saarländisches Künstlerhaus Saarbrücken and KuBa/Kulturzentrum am Eurobahnhof in Saarbrücken; former Goldene Bremm border checkpoint between Saarbrücken and Forbach (Lorraine); Städtische Galerie Neunkirchen; Institut für Aktuelle Kunst im Saarland and Ludwig Galerie in Saarlouis; Museum St. Wendel; World Cultural Heritage Site Völklinger Hütte; Museum Schloss Fellenberg in Merzig; Saarländische Galerie Berlin – Europäisches Kulturforum
