St. John International University
Campus Full time Part time October 2017 Italy Turin + 1 more

The Master of Arts in International Arts Administration (MIAA) focuses on a new conception of art as it has been developed in recent years through the expertise of practitioners. [+]

MA International Arts Administration (MIAA)St. John International University, Inc. (SJIU) is a private, independent American University in Italy offering undergraduate and graduate degrees.

The Master of Arts in International Arts Administration (MIAA) focuses on a new conception of art as it has been developed in recent years through the expertise of practitioners.A work of art is no longer conceived as an object to which different actions can apply. Art is now regarded as part of a network of relationships that can be identified as “information”. “Information” ishere understood as the new value formed by this relational vision of art. Information thus includes the cultural-geographical-ethical contexts in which a work of art has been conceived and has to beexperienced.The MIAA will develop the main topics of this complex network according to sustainability, management, and fruition of art.Sustainability means that nowadays any work regarding art has to reach its own sustainability, broadly understood as an economic-environmental-ethical rich conception.All art has to be stored, cataloged, and managed according to new electronic tools that are already part of fruition. Management represents the continuity between artworks and their fruition. Fruition is now an essential part of art. Communication, displaying, marketing are not severed from art as such. The management of art today involves the increasing of available resources (fund-raising strategies, innovative marketing tactics and promotion, etc.) and the improvement of their utilization (planning and financial control systems).Moreover, this new conception will apply to traditional works of art as well as to new forms of art...
