The Summer Show 2017
Exhibition of works by the Fondazione Fotografia master students
Scheduled at the end of each academic year, The Summer Show presents the art projects developed by the Fondazione Fotografia students throughout their studies at the master in contemporary image.
As in previous editions, the exhibition will feature the final works realised by the students completing the master in 2017, so as the mid-term projects conceived by students in the first year. In addition, the works of international students shortlisted for the European Photography Award (EPA) will be exhibited.
The EPA prize is an annual honor established to recognise the best photography students in Europe. The students of the Fondazione Fotografia master in photography participate in this contest with colleagues from the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, the Fachhochschule, Bielefeld, Germany, the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam, the Royal College of Art, London and the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste, Zurich. We are especially proud that our master student Francesca Zoe Paterniani has been awarded the EPA 2017. Paterniani has been chosen in light of the work produced during her residency at the Darat Al Funun Foundation, Amman, which was part of her training programme.
Furthermore, the Summer Show 2017 will showcase the works by Japanese students from the Tokyo University of the Arts, as resulted from their one-month residency at the Fondazione in June 2017.
