"Do we have the right arts education?" This is the central question of the Rolex Arts Weekend symposium led by Harvard University's Dr. Homi K. Bhabha. Tackling the pressing issues facing today's arts world is a panel of elite arts luminaries: William Kentridge, Miroslav Penkov, Tatiana Bilbao, Fergus Linehan, and Sir Anish Kapoor.
The Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative is an exciting international mentoring program that brings together emerging and master artists from seven disciplines (cinema, literature, theater, music, dance, fine arts, and architecture) for a year of collaboration and creative exchange. The program culminates in the Rolex Arts Weekend, a two-day arts festival welcoming guests from around the world to a series of public events showcasing the work perfected by the mentor-protégé pairs. This year’s Rolex Arts Weekend takes place on February 3 and 4 in the dynamic cultural capital of Berlin, and features the seven mentor-protégé pairs of the 2016-2017 initiative.
