Description

The Master in Contemporary Art Markets is an intensive study path directed at providing students with effective tools to interpret art market structures and dynamics, with particular focus on contemporary artistic languages. It provides students with the opportunity to come into direct contact with established industry professionals and to collaborate with acclaimed Italian and international art galleries, auction houses, art fairs, institutions, collections and art centers. The educational path consists of two cycles: the first is dedicated to classroom activities and thematic workshops allowing students to apply the notions learned. Visits to galleries, fairs, foundations and museums are also part of the program. The second focuses on a period of internships, enabling students to come into direct contact with various markets, together with a number of conferences and visits. They will also be preparing their final projects. During the month of November, the students will participate in a study trip to Artissima, International Fair of Contemporary Art in Turin and, in June, in a in-depth trip to Basel during ArtBasel, the most important, international art market event. The second cycle focuses on internships, enabling students to experience different market areas first-hand. During this cycle, students also prepare their final projects.

During the Academic Master, students will be given the opportunity to:

  • Understand the complex dynamics of the art market and the roles of the different professionals engaged in this sector
  • Acquire solid cultural, legal and economic knowledge of the art market
  • Develop projects and acquire historical and critical analysis and specialized communication competencies, along with practical and management skill

The Master in Contemporary Art Markets program is recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR) as an Academic Master’s degree (60 CFA).
