The next edition of Artissima will take place from 4 to 6 November 2022 (opening: 3 November) in Torino, under the guidance of Luigi Fassi.
The only Italian fair exclusively focusing on contemporary art, Artissima stands out on the international scene for its experimental, cutting-edge and sophisticated identity, and for the high quality exhibits.
The 2022 edition of the fair is composed by 4 flagship sections (Main Section, Monologue/Dialogue, New Entries, Art Spaces & Editions) and by 3 curated sections (Present Future, Back to the Future, Disegni) presented both physically at the fair and virtually on a dedicated digital platform.
A new theme will symbolically cross the sections: TRANSFORMATIVE EXPERIENCE. A transformative experience is capable of radically changing the person who goes through it, throwing rationally envisioned expectations into crisis and opening up a perspective on the unknown. The encounter with art is undoubtedly transformative and at the same time revelatory experience: an intense acceleration towards an unknown but desired future, capable of altering us in cognitive and personal terms, while providing new tools for interpretation of the world.
