Art Practices for the New Normal
A series of four free workshops led by four artists devoted to public art and social practice, who employ an authentic, credible, and transparent approach to involve a young audience in a process of change and emancipation.
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection, with the participation of Swatch Art Peace Hotel, presents a series of four workshops for young adults by internationally renowned artists. The project asks young artists to challenge their own practice by creating workshops which should become virtuous activators of community processes, and catalysts of actions to re-appropriate spaces and to redefine social paradigms.
The project is all the more significant under the present circumstances caused by the pandemic, which have led to a reformulation of priorities in communities on a global level. Workshops take into consideration current sanitary measures, such as social distancing, restrictions on gatherings and on accessing places, and online meeting opportunities. Therefore, workshops will take place both online and offline.
Workshops are for young adults of 16-25 years of age and will consist of sessions from remote and onsite meetings.
The on-line meetings are open to all, upon registration, with no limit of participants. The onsite meetings are open to a select number of participants who commit, by enrolling, to participate in every meeting.
Some meetings are held in Italian.
High school students can account the online and onsite activites as PCTO (Percorsi per le Competenze Trasversali e per l’Orientamento) time.
University students can receive credits for the workshops provided an agreement with the university and the dean of the department.
