The workshop Arts Management and Markets addresses all these issues opening the major in Arts and Heritage management. This course is fit for highly motivated students willing to acquire a professional and competitive edge in the area of Arts management.
The objective of the workshop is twofold.
- On the one side, to help advanced students to refine their specific profile of arts managers consistently with the international job market needs expressed by galleries, dealers, auction houses, exhibition spaces, collectors and artists.
- On the other side, to develop cultural mediation and cultural entrepreneurship capabilities in the perspective of a professional experience strongly characterized by the motivation and the specific understanding of the field, as by the active and enterpreneurial integration in a fast changing and highly internationalized system.
- One dedicated to the art system (actors, gatekeepers, auction, prices, professions etc) that integrates an historical perspective, direct contact with people that operates in the field at different levels, the analysis of the main transformation of the field.
- One dedicated to the cultural challenges that are influencing the production and the assessment system in the contemporary art (the analysis addresses curatorial issues, historical and critical, analysis of specific works, of specific artists, biographies of specific curators, history of specific exhibitions).
