Happing during Turin's Artissima, DAMA is an independent project which takes place in an antique palace in the center of Turin.
Inspired on Le città invisibili (Invisible cities), a novel written by Italo Calvino and published in 1972, the aim of this project is to repopulate the center of the old city, giving back to the ancient places in Turin, a certain intimacy by installing a show where artworks can be presented by galleries. Arranged within a warm atmosphere, the purpose of the project is to get rid of the sterile white cubes, which characterize the ordinary galleries, museums and art fairs, offering a more intimate relationship with the venue, simulating, therefore, collectors’ private apartments.
The kick off edition will be held at Palazzo Saluzzo di Paesana, one of the most prestigious palace in Turin, realized by Gian Giacomo Plantery in 1722 - on 560 sqm, where will be presented international artists showcased by 10 galleries coming from different countries.
