"301 Part One - Armenia: Memory of the Genocide": Jacopo Santini Exhibits at S.a.L.E. DOCKS in Venice

Congratulations to Jacopo Santini for his exhibition "301 Part One - Armenia: Memory of the Genocide," a body of work resulting from his recent photographic project supported by the SACI Faculty Professional Development Fund, opening July 14th in Venice, Italy.

301 Part One - Armenia: Memory of the Genocide (part 1), recent photographic works by Jacopo Santini, Co-Director of the MFA in Photography program at SACI, is on view at the S.a.L.E. DOCKS, a prominent contemporary art space in Venice, Italy, from July 14-28, 2019. The exhibition examines the people and places of Metz Yegern, or “the great sorrow,” the first genocide of the 20th century that, between 1915 and 1918, took the lives of approximately 1,500,000 Armenians living in what is currently Eastern Anatolia. The project, supported by the SACI Faculty Professional Development Fund, was featured in the 2018 winter issue of FUL Magazine.

The exhibition, opening on July 14, 2019 at 6:30pm, is on view through July 28, 2019. View the Facebook event.

301 Part One - Armenia: Memory of the Genocide is an ongoing project that was begun thanks to a grant from the SACI Faculty Professional Development Fund, an annual fund providing financial support to faculty members who wish to develop their professional activity in the arts and academic fields. In multiple trips to Armenia, most recently in May of 2019, Jacopo continues to observe the results of Metz Yegern and photograph the places and people of the area, hearing their stories and piecing together the lasting memories of this historic occurrence.
