Susanna Corchia: Cultural agent and external tutor at Metàfora on our art courses
Metàfora is a small and independent art institution, which means that we cannot offer the academic facilities of most universities. However, on our courses we try to provide our students with things they will not learn at university: How to “break through” the barrier and enter the artworld with a voice and an opportunity to be seen.
Every year during the autumn semester, we look for adequate external tutors for our 3rd year students to work with during the last months of their stay. The external tutor is most often an artist, a gallerist or a cultural agent, and the idea is always to choose someone who shares ideas and interests with the student and who can help them network and open doors in the artworld.
In the case of Melle Skarfstad, advanced level student at Metàfora, we thought it was interesting for her to get to know and share ideas with one of the strong female characters on Barcelona’s art scene, Susanna Corchia.
