OCAD University's Florence Program Visiting Artist + Speaker Series II brings eight international artists, academics and gallerists from Berlin, Florence, Glasgow, London and Milan to OCAD University’s Florence campus studio to engage in artist talks, lectures, workshops, individual studio visits and critiques over the winter semester. This unique opportunity offers students insight into how a successful international practice is developed as well receiving constructive feedback on their process and in-progress and final outcome independent studio work. 

Fabrizio Affronti is the gallery director and owner, of Brand New Gallery in Milan, Italy. The Gallery is a space devoted to Contemporary Art, suspended halfway between a gallery and a center for cultural promotion, a platform where artists, curators, and collectors can meet and exchange ideas. Brand New Gallery is the brainchild of two art historians, Chiara Badinella and Fabrizio Affronti, whose aim is to promote the work of foreign artists known internationally, but as yet unseen in Italy. Availing themselves of the collaboration of important American and European Contemporary Art galleries, Brand New Gallery commissions individual artists to do site-specific projects. The gallery features five to six exhibitions per year, in addition to lectures and seminars on Contemporary Art. www.brandnew-gallery.com

Organized by Linda Martinello, Assistant Professor / CLTA, Faculty of Art, OCAD University
