Brandeis Office of Study Abroad, Brandeis University

The Brandeis in Siena program is a two-course, intensive faculty-led summer program combining Studio Art and Art History in Siena, Italy. The program is a culturally immersive, experiential learning experience where students will come in direct contact with master works of art seminal to the canon of art history and Western culture. This program focuses on art of the Renaissance, giving the students the life-changing experience of learning and working surrounded by the experts they are studying.

In addition to our explorations of Siena itself, each year our Brandeis-in-Siena students explore other Italian cities as well which in recent years has included Venice, Rome, Assisi, Florence, San Gimignano, as well as Pisa!

Tseng Yu Chin Artist’s Talk

Join us on Tuesday, May 23rd at 6 pm for an artist’s talk with resident artist at the Siena Art Institute for May 2023 Tseng Yu Chin! The event will be held in person at the Siena Art Institute as well as live-streaming online through the Siena Art Institute’s YouTube channel and Facebook page. (6pm Italy, noon NYC)

Tseng Yu Chin began his creative career as an experimental filmmaker in Taiwan. After repeated pressures from the Taiwanese government to use his success as a filmmaker to promote political agendas, Tseng Yu-Chin left Taiwan. He currently lives in Amsterdam and Berlin with his partner.

His experiences of homophobic discrimination and victimization as a teen and young man led him to a deep understanding of the oppression of authority. His lived experiences have focused his artistic research on the conflict of self-consciousness, which he explores through video art production and extended cinema.
