FAQ
How is the course and the exhibition are organised?
The course takes place online. This format allows you to work without COVID-related restrictions.
You will research, develop and present your concept, and your work will be displayed at a collective show at the European Cultural Centre in Venice.
In 6 online meetings you will use our framework to create and refine ideas; encouraging experimentation and exploration. Once your project is ready, you will send it to the ECA. ECA staff takes care of the setup. You can travel to Venice if you wish to see the exhibition but it is not necessary.
What kind of work can I present in Venice?
You can work with digital, multimedia, sound art and performance. Our curators will help you to create or adapt your project if needed.
If you choose a performance art piece that you would like to present live in the palace, we agree on a date with you. We recommend, for example, to do it during the Art Night in Venice held in June.
What is the name and the venue of the final exhibition?
Your work will be displayed at the TIME-SPACE-EXISTENCE exhibition at the European Cultural Centre. European Cultural Centre is the second largest foundation in Venice after the Venice Biennale.
Location: Palazzo Mora, historic Venetian palace, Strada Nova, 3659, 30121.

You will be given a special format to present your work, provide guidance and support. The catalogue will be available, both printed and digital.

I am not sure I can join live. What is time commitment?
On-the-go format allows you to study at your convenience. Live sessions are recorded. You get a life-time access to all the materials. Study again when you are ready, have more time or need inspiration.
Is it for me?
This course is for anyone who has ideas and an artistic vision but does not have time or the possibility to craft them into great projects. The aim is to refine your artistic vision and make contemporary art work that resonates with others and adds to your portfolio.
