Program 2023

The next Summer Academy Venice will take place in 2023.

The owners of the Palazzo Zenobio have closed the entire complex during 2022 due to Corona and for renovation. This is very unfortunate for all of us. We have already started intensive negotiations with alternatives like Palazzo Grimani and Palazzo Querini Stampalia, but could not secure enough space for our entire program in the short time.

We want to keep both the master class system and the time period and therefore stay with the program, as indicated on the website, also for 2023.

We do not want to stay behind the previous standards in the quality of our work and our offer and therefore ask you to understand that we do not want to go for half solutions.

As badly as Corona and the consequences of it have affected us, as much as we regret not to continue with our program until 2023, a recent observation shows the high standard of the work of our Academy in Venice:

In the London Cultural Center “180 The Strand” works with the title "New Wave of Contemporary Art, The World Most celebrated Artists to expand the boundaries of Immersive Art and blur the lines between the physical and the Virtual World" are shown.

As you can see in the video, all the projects shown there work with techniques and software that we have already used in the Summer Academy in Venice 2013, about 8 years ago: in the classes of Jens Barth and Nathan Sinigaglia from immersive art to vvvv. It is worthwhile to see a small comparison in the video at: youtu.be/62ZYH7p_EJw. Check it out. You can rest on your laurels!

With this in mind, and with joy to 2023, we sincerely remain

Diana Millet and Wolf Werdigier

Stay healthy!

 

The International Summerschool of Fine Arts and Media | Venice is grounded in the tradition of Black Mountain College and Robert Wilson’s Watermill Center.

Our interdisciplinary approach welcomes students of all skill levels and backgrounds to our idyllic location in Venice, where the school was founded in 2003. The school partners with the Venice Biennale, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and Francois Pinault’s collection at the Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana.

Students enrolled in our summer art classes will find a global teaching staff, peers from more than 15 nations, and classes geared toward everyone from the complete beginner to the advanced career artist.

The courses are scheduled weekly, allowing students to immerse themselves in an interdisciplinary and creative environment. The master classes start on Monday and end on Sunday. Saturday evening is the exhibition of the work of the students curated by the teaching professors. 

In 2022 we will start a new model of organization.

As the International Summer Academy Venice has to facilitate high end art and innovative experimenting, the classes will be divided in 2 weeks of training and 2 weeks of innovative studios. During the first 2 weeks training in different art disciplines will be offered as it has been offered in the recent years. During the second 2 weeks artists will work in their own studios for individual or small group work. In order to support interdisciplinary work, we will invite a New Media expert to assist the project work during this time. Artist are welcomed to book a studio for their individual project work during one or two weeks.

For more information on the school and the master classes, and concept read more here. Find the blog and documentation here.

Due to the 2 years corona interruption teaching professors might be subject to change.

To enroll, please subscribe to our newsletter and you will be informed when the application is open.
