Turin hosts the 20th season of Artissima, Friday, November 8th to Sunday, November 10th, 2013.
Begun in Piedmont's Capital City in 1994, Artissima has constructed its own special identity over time, placing itself as the apex of important international art fairs.
Indeed, the event boasts the participation of 190 galleries this year (60 Italian and 130 from abroad), arriving from a total of 38 different countries. The fair is divided into four main sections: “Main Section” is devoted to those galleries most representative of the world art scene; “New Entries” features younger galleries; “Present Future” caters to emerging artists; and “Back to the Future” exhibits entire displays of artists that worked mostly durng the '60s and '70s, selected by a prestigious team of museum directors and curators.
This year also marks the first edition of One Torino, a grand annual review involving some of the best creatives in contemporary art, realized in collaboration with the city's major institutions: the Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, GAM Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, the Fondazione Merz, and the Fondazione Sandretto (at both the Re Rebaudengo and Palazzo Cavour lcoations). One Torino highlights Turin's specialties, traditions and expertise, reinforcing both its urban and extra-urban spirit, know-how and innovation in all that is contemporary.
