Not an Artist

NOT AN ARTIST is an investigation project led by IED and Accademia di Belle Arti “Aldo Galli” Como, involving professionals of the world of contemporary art and culture. The concept arises from the observation of the contemporary art and culture scenario, which is evolving and opening up the market for new opportunities. The goal is to foster a conversation and a discussion about the role and future evolution of all the “side-professions” that accompany and complement the work of Artists and Designers as well as the definition of the blurring borders between Art and the Design Professions.
