Iranian New York-based visual artist Shirin Neshat is Guest of Honor and Chair of the Committee for RUFA Contest 4th edition. Her look into the feminine world as a look marked by social, political and psychological contrasts meets the theme of the year: “SOUND or SPACE or TIME in White and Black”.

RUFA Contest, created by Emanuele Cappelli and promoted by RUFA Rome University of Fine Arts, is designed to be a time for exchange and cultural contamination between Italian and international creative communities. Art, cinema and design merge into twenty-five selected projects, and dance and music performances to portray the theme of the year from different perspectives. The Guest of Honor, a world-class artist, gives the twenty-five selected students a master class during the day of the event, and subsequently picks the winner in occasion of the award ceremony, an engaging dialogue with a national and international audience.

Values, Bodies, Conditions. Force to Act.
