Flash Art 50: a weekend of Italian art history
28 – 29 October
Auditorium of the National Museum of Science and Technology “Leonardo Da Vinci” / Milan

This year, Flash Art turns fifty years old. To celebrate this special occasion, the symposium “Flash Art 50” invites some of the most influential personalities in the Italian art scene to retrace the history of art from 1967 until today.

Articulated in five round tables, the symposium aims to deepen artistic research, theoretical lines and the systemic trends that have characterised five decades of editorial activity by Flash Art. Each round table will include artists, critics, curators and gallerists – all pivotal figures in the evolution of artistic discourse in their respective eras – and will be moderated by a historical representative from editorial.

The symposium will take place in the Auditorium of the National Museum of Science and Technology “Leonardo Da Vinci” (via San Vittore, 21), Milan, Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th of October 2017, from 11am to 7pm and 11am to 4:30pm, respectively.

Entry is free until allocation exhausted.
