About the Florence Contemporary Course

What are the legacies of the renaissance within the dominant canon and how are they reflected and resisted in contemporary art and design? This course interrogates the new within the context of the old, with site visits and immersion in contemporary cultural production in Florence. The rich transdisciplinarity of Florentine renaissance sites and artworks is considered alongside the thriving contemporary artisanal culture of the city. This graduate course in studio and scholarly practices offers a compelling opportunity for art and design research and creation, aligning student's thesis objectives within a context of deep cultural interaction and international enquiry.
