For Kunst@IHS, Curator Melissa Lumbroso invites artists at irregular intervals to create and present artworks in and for the spaces at Palais Strozzi. Artists are selected with the curatorial focus of facilitating synergies between the fields of research and artistic practice. The guiding principle is to highlight the institute’s renown as a locus of interdisciplinary research and activities. In addition, the unique history of the institute as well as its historical location provide artists with the unique occasion to realize site-specific works.
