On occasion of the AMACI Day of Contemporary Culture #GiornataDelContemporaneo we are proud to showcase the artworks created by our intrepid young artists at the Siena Art Institute during the very unusual circumstances of the Fall 2020 semester:
Tana LaKale (Spain) – Fivos Chalkiopoulos (Greece) – Vasilina Papadimitropoulou (Greece)
Amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, our students have turned limitation into opportunity. They have tenaciously and creatively pursued their artistic projects, including work from our courses in Creative Writing, Digital Multimedia, Photography, and the interdisciplinary course Art & Society.
The slideshows below offer a glimpse into our activities with teachers & students throughout the Fall 2020 semester. Our Fall 2020 students arrived in early September and were able to explore Siena and the surrounding territory in group activities until the increased restrictions required students to work separately in their individual studios in the second half of the semester.
At the start of the semester we had an excursion to San Gimignano, exploring the historic city center and the exhibitions of contemporary art at Galleria Continua.
Guided walks in Siena’s historic center included the contemporary interventions of the Tempo Zulu project, led by instructor Bernardo Giorgi.
We visited the Fonte delle Monache, the Sator Print studio, the museum of the Tartuca Contrada, the Fisiocritici Museum, the Briganti Library, and the museum of Santa Maria della Scala.
Students participated in the EternoPresente project at the Pinacoteca Museum, together with poet-in-residence Donna Stoneciper and the young musicians of the Franci Academy.
In October a mid-term group critique offered students input on their work underway.
As restrictions increased in the second half of the semester, students were able to focus on their individual studio projects at the Siena Art Institute.
The Siena Art Institute’s Fall 2020 Greek students are supported through the SNF-SART scholarships thanks to the collaboration of the Stavros-Niarchos Foundation.
