This course attempts to provide a new perspective on contemporary art and architecture. Venice offers unique venues for experiencing modern art, including the Peggy Guggenheim Museum, the Pinault Foundation at Palazzo Grassi and Punto della Dogana, the Prada Foundation, and Ca Pesaro Galleria dell’Arte Moderna. In 2016, Venice also hosted the 15th International Architecture Exhibition, curated by the Chilean architect Alejandro Aravena. In order to ensure the connection between art and architecture the course will focus on strategies of display, and students will produce a project for the American pavilion.
