Artissima is ready to unveil its new form. An Unplugged model spreading across times and spaces, combining physical exhibitions with digital projects: an acoustic version of the fair that focuses on the instrument (the artworks) and the voice (the galleries).
In its physical guise, Artissima will present three exhibition projects in the museums of Fondazione Torino Musei (GAM – Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Palazzo Madama – Museo Civico d’Arte Antica and MAO Museo d’Arte Orientale), from 7 November 2020 to 9 January 2021. These shows, sharing the theme Frenetic Standstill and curated by Ilaria Bonacossa, will contain artworks provided by many of the galleries selected for the fair this year.
In its digital guise, Artissima will launch two virtual projects. One of them is Artissima XYZ, an unusual cross-media platform covering the curated sections: Present Future curated by Ilaria Gianni and Fernanda Brenner, Back to the Future curated by Lorenzo Giusti and Mouna Mekouar, and Disegni curated by Letizia Ragaglia and Bettina Steinbrügge (online from 3 November to 9 December 2020). The other is the online catalogue, to explore the galleries, artists and artworks of the Main Section, New Entries, Dialogue/Monologue, Art Spaces & Editions (online from 5 November to 9 December 2020).
Once again, also thanks to fair’s synergy with the cultural and artistic institutions of the territory, November will be an opportunity to get more closely acquainted with contemporary art in all its infinite forms.
