Description de l'exposition:
The Queens Museum is proud to host the first show initiated by an American museum by Italian artist Marinella Senatore. Piazza Universale / Social Stages, curated by Matteo Lucchetti, introduces the multifaceted practice of Senatore by looking at a range of important recent projects created in Spain, France, Italy and the US between 2009 and today.
Piazza universale—“the universal square”—refers to the exquisitely Italian concept of the piazza, a public space par excellence where different communities meet, and as an embodiment of an ideal, universal space where future communities can be envisioned collaboratively. The title Piazza Universale/Social Stages presents one Italian and one English phrase as if the second were a translation of the former. But the second is not a translation of the first.
