The artist’s talent, but also the curator’s organisational skills: this is what the Graduate Degree track in Visual Arts develops, through a continuous dialogue between theory and practice of artistic knowledge

The artist’s talent, but also the curator’s organisational skills: this is what the Graduate Degree track in Visual Arts develops, through a continuous dialogue between theory and practice of artistic knowledge.

Theoretical courses are held by professors who are active researchers in their respective fields of expertise, from semiotics to theory of art, and from the philosophy of science to aesthetics.

During laboratories and workshops (also taught in English) students will be directed by internationally renowned curators and artists, and will be followed by qualified assistants. These workshops will be organised according to the most advanced international experiences in the field of "practice-led” visual arts research.

The programme also offers internships in Italian and international art institutions.

 

All these qualities make this Graduate Degree Programme in Fashion and Visual Arts quite unique in the Italian landscape of Second Level Graduate Degree Programmes
