Public Talk

Art on the Edge: On Money, Technology and Creativity

16:15 — 17:45
Russian Museum of Ethnography, Conference Hall 4/1 Inzhenernaya st., St. Petersburg

During the discussion, the artist and sculptor Romolo Del Deo will talk about how the desire to use new materials and new methods, technical innovations and profit “kills” young artists and destroys the longevity of art, since the materials and methods that artists have successfully used for centuries, were superseded by commercialized substitutes.

An honored master and an experienced teacher will tell you how contemporary creators maintain the best centuries-old traditions of creating works of art, while keeping up with the development of technology, communications and new trends in the world of contemporary art.
