Aujourd'hui is proud to announce its partnership with Artissima, Italy’s leading contemporary art fair, will return to the Olympic Oval pavilion in Turin from November 3 to 5, 2017, for the first time under the guidance of Ilaria Bonacossa.
Renowned on an international level for its focus on experimental practices and its path of constant innovation from one year to the next, in 2017 the fair will feature a series of new developments: besides the recently announced new Disegni (Drawings) section, the updated team of curators and an innovative digital platform, Artissima will be enhanced by new ideas and specific initiatives: a special exhibition project, the “Deposito d’Arte Italiana Presente” (Warehouse of Present-Day Italian Art), an innovative programme of talks, and a renewed architectural layout for the fair pavilion designed by studio Vudafieri Saverino Partners of Milan.
“The year 2017—Ilaria Bonacossa explains—is the 50th anniversary of the initiatives that were essential to the genesis of Arte Povera. Artissima attempts to trace back through some of the most novel experiences of that period, which laid the groundwork for Turin’s status as the Italian capital of contemporary art. The fair will investigate the relationships between artistic practices, the market, collecting and leisure time through the temporary reconstruction of iconic contexts like the Deposito d’Arte Presente (1967–68) or the Piper (1966–69) club, for their visionary capacity to reinvent roles and to activate contaminations between different disciplines.”
We will have more updates and exclusive content leading up to the fair and also live during the exhibiting days.
