Ugo Rondinone and the world's largest rainbow painting
In Ugo Rondinone's work, the rainbow features prominently as a recurring motif with multiple meanings. It is not only an impressive spectacle of nature but also a symbol of peace, equality, tolerance, and the connection between heaven and earth.
Together with the Belvedere, the Swiss artist, who lives in New York, is inviting children aged 6 to 12 years to paint rainbow pictures. This hope-filled project will be launched in the spring of 2021 by the Belvedere's art education team in collaboration with elementary schools throughout Austria.
The result will be the participatory work your age and my age and the age of the rainbow, which will consist of 1,085 rainbow panels. The 70-meter-long installation will be on view from 13 June to 1 November 2021 in the baroque garden between the Belvedere and Belvedere 21.
Ugo Rondinone is an internationally acclaimed Swiss artist. For over twenty years he has pushed boundaries across various media and disciplines. His works are often based on themes and motifs related to everyday life, which he imbues with a poetic dimension. Rondinone creates evocative moods that capture the spirit of contemporary life.
