Venice, Capri & Positano, Kassel, Basel, Porto
Survival of Serena in Piazzetta Capri
Art lovers around the world will be going to Europe over the next five months to see the art chosen for the Venice Biennale, Art Basel and Documenta 14. If you are going to Europe, you should stop in to see Carole A. Feuerman’s latest public exhibitions! Let me tell you about the shows that are currently in place.
The first show you should see is her solo exhibition in Venice featuring ten iconic outdoor sculptures. Located right next to the Venice Biennale on the canal Arsenale stop, her sculptures are keeping the largest yachts company. This exhibition, “Personal Structures, Open Borders" is installed in the Giardino Della Marinaressa (Riva dei Sette Martiri, 30122 Venice, Italy) and is open to the public through December 5, 2017, from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm daily, but her Venice shows do not stop there. Her works can also be seen in Palazzo Mora, Palazzo Bembo, San Clemente Palace, and Bel-Air Fine Art Gallery.

After Venice, head down to the Amalfi Coast where you can see Feuerman’s Monumental Quan on display in Positano at Liquid Art System. Then take the ferry to Capri to see Feuerman’s most iconic sculpture, Survival of Serena, on display in the center of the Piazzetta! Since the moment of its installation, people cannot stop photographing the sculpture or asking to be photographed close to "her" with the backdrop of the majestic Mount Solaro, overlooking the Bay of Naples.

After Italy, make your way north to Switzerland. Art St. Urban Foundation in Lucerne has a permanent exhibition of Feuerman’s earlier erotic pieces. It is located in the former Cistercian monastery of St. Urban and dates back to 1184. Nestled in an enchanting landscape, Art St. Urban offers the unique and impressive environment of art installations throughout the property. The building that now houses the museum was once used as a psychiatric clinic of the canton of Lucerne since 1873. The installation was organized by Gertrud Aeschlimann and curated by Peter Frank, Art Critic at The Huffington Post and Associate Editor of Fabrik Magazine.

Feuerman is recognized as a pioneering figure in the world of hyperrealistic sculpture. She is one of the three artists, along with Duane Hanson and John De Andrea, who started the movement in the late seventies by making life-like sculptures that portrayed their models precisely.
Snap some selfies with Feuerman’s sculptures and tag them with #carolefeuerman so we can see where you’ve traveled. Enjoy the summer!
