ART SESSION 2023
TOPIC OF THE PROJECT:
The major topic of the School program was the value selection between the internal own values and what affects a man from the outside, such as mass media, Internet, and common stereotypes. How does a modern man pass through such value conflict? What contradictory values do people face? What value dilemmas do they solve? How to save global values and avoid instantaneous influences?
Participants had to reflect the struggle inside a modern man between eternal true global principles and aggressively imposed inane temptations of the modern world.
Project participants attended lectures, intensive courses and master classes provided by the professors of the St. Petersburg Academy of Fine Arts, and got acquainted with the art community of the city and with the students of the Academy. Students also had a cultural program to spend their leisure time visiting world famous museums, theatres and galleries in Saint Petersburg. They have visited the State Hermitage Museum and the State Russian Museum, the Mikhailovsky Theatre, St. Isaac's, Kazansky and Nikolsky Cathedrals, the Tsarskoye Selo Palace and the Great Peterhof Palace. Creation of an artwork on the suggested topic finalized the course.
Fifteen artists and sculptors from Argentina, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Turkey, Venezuela, Burundi, Vietnam, Uganda and Burkina Faso, as well as ten young students from Lugansk State Academy of Culture and Arts named after M. Matusovsky, took part in the 2023 Art Session. Participants of different nationalities and social and academic backgrounds quickly found a common language between them – the language of art and global human values.
As a result, students created pieces on a given theme.
