Visual Arts and Architecture
From our foundation, the British School at Rome has attracted visual artists and architects of the highest calibre to work and develop in this unique, multi-disciplinary community.
Today, those who win residencies represent the very best of established and up-and-coming contemporary practitioners in the UK and the Commonwealth: they draw on the BSR’s uniquely lively and engaged intellectual environment to gain further impetus for critical and commercial success in their careers.
Support for visual artists and resident architects is offered by the Assistant Director (Fine Arts), Jacopo Benci , a practising artist who works across media, trained in art history, and has been writing and lecturing about Italian post-war cinema since 2003. Jacopo co-ordinates the exhibitions of work by the awardees as well as providing information, and organizing site and cultural visits.
Public exhibitions of the work of BSR award-holders, are held three times per year.
