ARTISTS CAN NOW APPLY FOR OUR 2018-2019 PROGRAMME
Alongside its residency programme Snehta inaugurates SCULPTURE SCHOOL – offering professional mentoring and technical knowledge to emerging artists who want to excel in sculptural practice.
Each Unit runs under the wings of an established Athens based artist who proposes a specific sculptural theme.
“The Readymade in Sculpture” – invited artist: Nana Sachini 14/01/2019 – 04/03/2019 (2 months).
Students cultivate their own methodology in using and collecting different kinds of materials and objects by examining thoroughly the approach of other artists and through working on personal projects. The course includes exercises which examine the use of materials and tools through a broader conceptual spectrum employing the ‘readymade’ and stressing its particular important role in contemporary art. The lessons consist of individual exercises – tasks and also programmed visits to exhibitions and places of special artistic interest.
