VASARI FESTIVAL OF TEXTS ABOUT ART AT ARSENAL

Arsenal, September 23-25, 2022

The festival’s relevance can be explained by the necessity of bringing art and audience together. It’s here to help understand the language of art, to encourage reflection by fostering a discussion around professional texts on art ranging from academic studies to art journalism. The festival is named after Italian painter Giorgio Vasari from Arezzo (1511–1574), author of the first ever large-scale study about art and founder of the modern art history. Vasari Festival is designed for a wide range of audiences and readers.
