Hallo aus Deutschland!

I am Aliene De Souza Howell, a current Academy student who received one of four residency grants to work in Leipzig, Germany for 2 months this summer. This opportunity was earned through hard work of course, in the form of strong grades, volunteer contributions to the academy and an attitude cognizant of an individual’s responsibility to a community. The other students who are currently here are Ian Yi Cao, Rabecca Signorello, and Tyler Vouros. My posts in this blog will detail the work and experiences being made here in Germany.

The Leipzig school is a vital and indispensable part of the figurative microcosm of the ever-expanding contemporary art world. It is amazing to be here, in the same converted cotton mill studio building as Neo Rauch, the forerunner of this narrative surrealist movement. It has galvanized all of us to experiment with our freshly acquired Academy skills.

More photos to come!
