[Cos’è il contemporaneo? Artisti e curatore dicono]

Fondazione March for Contemporary Art presents a cycle of lectures entitled “What is Contemporary? Artists and curators tell”: A series of meetings on contemporary art, directed to the Humanities and Philosophy School students of the University of Padova and to the public.

The aim of Fondazione March is to present a series of meetings to promote the knowledge sharing and to stimulate the audience to compare contemporary themes and tendences, through focusing on several aspects others than common university lessons. Conference relators will be international curators and well-known mid-career artists, to answer the question “What is contemporary?” through a presentation of their researches and practices.

The collaboration with the University of Padova is clearly one of the main proposals of the Fondazione, in line with the mission: to promote and encourage an open debate on contemporary art, through a direct exchange between experts and the public, enabling them to get in touch with artistic realities of international level.
