We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, November 10 at 6 p.m. on RUFA’s Instagram profile for a direct and enriching discussion with Kathy Battista: “Redefining Art Communication & Art Criticism Today.” Through a ‘question-and-answer’ format with lecturer Fabrizio Pizzuto, Kathy will talk about some of the key issues that will be addressed and explored as part of the new Academic Master’s Program in Art Curating and Management.
Indeed, during the meeting they will discuss methods and tools of cultural marketing and creative communication for contemporary art, both verbal and audiovisual, and the endless possibilities of art management and art curating.
Participants will also have the opportunity to intervene during the live Instagram with questions and curiosities, initiating a direct exchange with a prominent figure in the international art scene.
