Art Talk — Arts management. The evolution of the relationship between artistic disciplines and company management
Friday, April 5th 2019, 3 pm
Approaching the study and practice of the arts with the tools and techniques of corporate management is no longer a taboo. In theoretical reflection and in practice, the main concept is "hybridization" and, in its name, projects and training processes are multiplying in order to enhance the synergies between art and management. But what does this mythical conjunction mean concretely? How many dimensions can we decline? and with what results? In the talk "Arts Management. The evolution of the relationship between artistic disciplines and company management" Fabrizio Panozzo analyzes the reasons of this historic meeting between disciplines and explores some of its consequences on artists, companies and universities.
Event in the frame of SMATH Project - Smart Atmospheres of social and financial innovation for innovative clustering of creative industries in MED area.

Art Talk — New directions in contemporary photography, between curatorship and independent publishing
Saturday, April 6th 2019, 4 pm
Photography is now indisputably a dominant contemporary art form. Responding to the myriad of means of distributing the photographic images, the talk focuses on two types of displays – the "white cube" (the curatorial approach) and the "white page" (the editorial approach) – as a departure point for an open reflection on new directions in contemporary photography.

Art Talk — The Digital Art in the age of artificial intelligence
Sunday, April 7th 2019, 3.30 pm
Digital art is suddenly faced with an abrupt change: from the use of sophisticated interfaces capable of producing special effects, immersions in virtual reality, visions of the invisible, digital art is now capable to teach powerful computers to learn and become "creative". Will the machines be more creative than humans?
Ennio Bianco — Expert in Digital Art and Independent Curator
Art Talk — The Power of nature, rebuilding through art
Saturday, April 13th 2019, 3.30 pm
The talk of April 13th takes its cue from the "Manifesto of the third landscape", in which Gilles Clément reflects, among other things, on a "combination of residues and reserves to build territories of biological continuity". The meeting will focus on nature and its territories as resources, ranging from sculpture and land art to new potential forms to find a balance between the natural and the artificial paradise.
With the participation of the Regional Councilor Elena Donazzan.

Art Talk — Design and Contemporary Art, new dialogues
Wednesday, April 17th 2019, 3.30 pm
Following the logic of the cohesion between art, technology and craftsmanship, the current art talk places itself within a wider debate on the relationship between FUNCTION and FORM. In a society characterized by hybridism and fluid identity, designers are seen as "the greatest synthesizers in the world". In this light, the talk of April 17th will open a new direction in what regards an active dialogue between contemporary art and design.
