amaci-logoOn Saturday, October 11, 2014, the 10th AMACI Giornata del Contemporaneo – the Day of Contemporary Art – will be held throughout Italy, to focus on the art of our times. The major event focusing on contemporary art and its public is now in its tenth year. Doors will open free of charge to present artists and new ideas through exhibitions, workshops, events and conferences, as part of a multifaceted program that, year after year, offers an opportunity for the public to experience the complex and lively world of contemporary art. Since its inception, the Day of Contemporary Art has been supported by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities, and has obtained the sponsorship of Italy’s leading institutions.

Studio Art Centers International (SACI) in Florence, Italy offers the only US-accredited MFA in Studio Art and MFA in Photography programs taught entirely in Europe. During their two years in these programs, students are immersed in the contemporary art world. They work in a creative environment of rigorous critical and technical inquiry and draw inspiration from their direct exposure to the unique artistic and cultural resources of Italy. They specialize in Painting, Drawing, or Photography, and work in studios in a fully renovated Renaissance palazzo in Florence’s historic center. The palazzo includes a contemporary art gallery that features works by emerging and established artists of both local and international stature.

SACI invites the general public to meet and interact with these young contemporary artists during an Open Studio event – Saturday, October 11, 4-7pm, in Via Sant’Egidio 14 – where visitors can experience art in the making, and visit the Jules Maidoff Palazzo Gallery, which is featuring photographs by Antonio Manta.

    Wow, detailed and amazing! Thank you for sharing exhibition info.

    I would agree that getting out of auto functions ASAP is a must for beginner photographers. Unfortunetaly there are so much free content which is gold, but really hard to find everything in one place needed for starters. However i am happy with my progress, even though it took me too long get to know all the basics.

    However, as i have mentioned, sometimes we just have to not be afraid of paying for a good teacher, someone who helps or even a photography course. It depends on how much you can spend on it. A lot to pay doesnt mean you will get what you wanted to get from a high priced lessons. Basics shouldnt cost much for starters, you can search for the lessons in the local photographers studio or even find what you need on the internet.

    To sum up, i can only say that i am glad someone is taking a photo camera in their hands and going out to search for those small details that fulfills our lifes being in that “moment” and i glad i picked up mine and finally started. I am originally from France and it means a lot for me! This helped me a lot to find the information in one place i needed to get better at basics, which is one of the most important things…
