Contemporary Art Gallery Crawl with “Mapping Contemporary Florence” on September 14

Contemporary Art Gallery Crawl
September 14 at 6 pm

SACI students will get the chance to scope out Florence’s art scene on September 14 on a Contemporary Art Gallery Crawl organized as part of the New York University project Mapping Contemporary Florence. Students from SACI and NYU will visit several of the top galleries in town, followed by a reception for all participants at Museo Marino Marini.

Mapping Contemporary Florence, a student-run blog under the umbrella of NYU’s exceptional lecture series La Pietra Dialogues, aims to “reflect on what ‘contemporary’ art means in a city where the past has left such a strong imprint”. Beyond tracking contemporary arts events in the city, the blog also features a valuable archive of lectures and discussions which investigate the issues and questions surrounding current culture in Florence. The Gallery Crawl supports this mission by giving students a close-up look at the art currently on view in the city, offering them the chance to pass from being observers to active participants in the conversation about contemporary Florence. What a great way set the semester in motion!

Sound like fun? To participate send an email to gallery@saci-florence.edu.
