OCAD University's Florence Program is hosting a Visiting Artist + Speaker Series which brings six international artists, critics and gallerists to our international campus to engage in artist talks, critiques and individual studio visits. This unique opportunity offers students insight into how a successful international practice is developed as well receiving critical feedback on their independent studio work. 

MARCH 16  FABRIZIO AFFRONTI 

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
