Traditionally, The Day of the Academy of Applied Arts Dec. 6th is celebrated with a juried student exhibition and a presentation of the APU AWARD to selected best students.This year, the exhibition opening was held Dec. 8th, when the APU AWARDS for the academic year 2013-2014 were announced by the Dean prof. Josip Butković, the Mayor of Rijeka and the deputy perfect of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County.
I was recently invited by the Gallery Greta from Zagreb to make a selection of artists and students for the Interface New Media Festival exhibition. Included are works from four students that participated in the mobility Mapping Komiža Narratives 2014 organized through MAP study and ADRIART project. Participating students are Sara Salomon (MAP CM Intermedia), Dajana Jurman Osip, Dominik Grdic and Andreja Jandrecic (APU students). Participating MAP teachers are Ingeborg Fulepp, Nadija Mustapic and Tomislav Brajnovic
The exhibition Interface is open from 8/11/2014 - 14/11/ 2014, ex-Bernardi, Rijeka, Croatia
This year Mapping Komiza Narratives mobility was the last in the series of ADRIART mobilities that started three years ago.
ADRIART mobilities, through their pedagogic approach of working with site-specific thematic and local partnerships, have a significant impact to students’ learning processes. The participation on this compact and intensive form of classes has proved to be transformative not only for students but also for the teachers involved, and to the external production collaborators and audiences of the artworks delivered to the public.
