Art at the Hub

Sometimes it occurs to us that life could be more than rocket science. What about art for instance?

The Hub as a gallery

When we first saw the big, white walls of Palais Strozzi we knew: This place cries for art.

Our “Art at the Hub” program allows artists with a special interest in science to present their work. Furthermore, it allows these works of art to enter into a dialogue with the historic walls.

These Hub exhibitions will change several times a year and will be presented to the public at a vernissage.

The person in charge is Laura Stöger.

Our seventh artist:

Karin Czermak

Shapes appear, overlap, disappear. Colors intertwine, find each other, replace each other. The results of these continuous reworkings are poetic yet fragmented works of art that evoke different associations and interpretations.

With „Resolving Landscapes“, Karin Czermak addresses natural areas using acrylic and pastels on both canvas and paper. In the process of painting, Karin resolves, splits and rearranges scenic elements, thus composing fragile artworks that represent landscapes made up by abstract color patches.
