Therme Art works with internationally renowned artists and architects, as well as emerging talents, to commission and develop site-specific artistic projects that challenge the limitations of conventional exhibition spaces and redefine contemporary art viewing. Therme Art provides the resources and means required to fulfill artists’ visions which cannot be realized in galleries or museums, regardless of their complexity, production, installation, and long-term maintenance. Therme Art’s artists challenge the limitations of conventional art spaces, whether it be playing with the architectural elements of an environment, developing entire ecosystems, or creating immersive installations that transform visitors’ experiences.
Therme Art’s most recent collaborations include its acquisition of the 2021 Serpentine Pavilion, designed by Sumayya Vally and Counterspace, marking its third consecutive year in partnership with Serpentine to support its annual architecture program, its development of three major projects at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, The Garden of Privatised Delights, co-curated by Madeleine Kessler and Manijeh Verghese; Mutual Aid by Pnat and plant scientist Stefano Mancuso; and Resurrecting the Sublime, an immersive installation merging art and biotechnology by Sissel Tolaas. Coming up is Jeppe Hein’s artistic project Today I Feel Like… Manchester 2021, as part of Therme Art’s collaboration with Manchester International Festival.
