Artissima 2013

TURIN (Torino)
The twentieth edition of Artissima, International Fair of Contemporary Art, will be held in Turin, under the artistic direction of Sarah Cosulich Canarutto. Artissima will be presenting 190 galleries (60 from Italy and 130 from abroad), coming from 38 countries. Compared to the past edition the foreign galleries number has increased and 12 new countries will take part in the fair. The galleries will be presented in the traditional five section:

Main section: the section including the most representative galleries on the international art scene chosen by the Selection Committee of the fair.

New Entries: the section devoted to the most interesting young galleries that have been operating for less than five years and that are being presented for the first time at Artissima.Present Future: a by-invitation section including solo shows by emerging artists from around the world selected by a team of six international curators and presented by their galleries.

Back to the Future: a very unique section, in art fair with a strong flair for the latest experimentation, aimed at focusing the attention on artists who have played an important role in the history of contemporary art but who have not always received the visibility they deserve.

Art Editions: devoted to galleries and other spaces presenting editioned works, prints and multiples by contemporary artists.Among new developments in 2013, one should note that this will be the first year of One Torino, a major annual festival conceived and produced by Artissima and realised in collaboration with the city’s leading contemporary art institutions and exhibition venues.Artissima public opening dates and hours:7 November 2013 12 pm – Press Preview
