Marinella Senatore

(Italy, 1977). Trained in music, fine arts, and film, her practice is characterized by public participation, initiating a dialogue between history, culture, and social structures. Rethinking the role of the artist as author and the public as recipient, Senatore’s work merges forms of protest, learning theatre, oral histories, vernacular forms, protest dance and music, public ceremonies, civil rituals, and mass events, reflecting on the political nature of collective formations and their impact on the social history of places and communities.

Her work has been exhibited widely throughout Italy and abroad, including: Bienal of Sao Paulo ; Manifesta 12; Centre Pompidou; Kunsthaus Zurich; MAXXI Museum; Castello di Rivoli; Palais de Tokyo; Schirn Kunsthalle; Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago; High Line, NY; Berlinische Galerie; Kunsthalle Sankt Gallen; Faena Art Forum; Bozar, BXL; Queens Museum; Petach Tikva Museum; Sandretto Re Rebau- dengo Foundation; Serpentine Gallery; CCA Tel Aviv; and many more
