Finally, we’ve pulled through the last of our studio days and critiques — and those remaining in Rome are excitedly preparing for a final exhibition of student work. A cumulative force of objects, videos, photographs, animations, and models, our individual and collaborative projects encapsulate our experiences as art, architecture, and history students abroad throughout this wondrous semester.
To some of us, this showcase will present more recent works of our peers that we haven’t seen yet (though we do share a studio– these final weeks were busy!). To others, perhaps it’ll serve as familiar reminders of special memories in our journey together in Rome. Nevertheless this exhibition provides a complete opportunity to view and discuss interesting creative material for everybody and anybody- including guests, family members, and friends beyond AAP.
A major part of our Cornell in Rome curriculum has been going out to see exhibitions, biennials, shows, and landmarks; in such an experience-focused program, at times it may have felt like time to compose our own show was very limited. Yet, we’ve managed to produce our best– and upon seeing the works from our Art Studio course from final critique, I can personally say that my excitement for this occasion is out of bounds. I won’t spare any details of the aforementioned projects yet, so do come see for yourself if you can! The Open House and Reception will be held at the Palazzo on Thursday, December 13, from 7-9pm– we cordially invite everyone to swing by, enjoy refreshments, and have a look at our semester works.
Till next time,
