ARTISSIMA 18: The Celebrated Contemporary Art Fair Returns to Turin
For the ninth consecutive year, UniCredit is the main sponsor of the eighteenth annual international contemporary art fair, ARTISSIMA, which runs from November 4 to 6, 2011 at the Oval Lingotto Fiere in Turin.
ARTISSIMA is not only a showcase for some of the most famous and cutting-edge galleries on the international scene but it is also a true celebration of the arts that never fails to energize the city of Turin with its innovative cultural offerings.
Our Group will promote three special initiatives at this year's fair:
- ARTISSIMA Lido, a new project featuring events that spotlight art spaces founded and operated by artists in Italy. A special edition of our Carte Blanche catalogue will be dedicated to this project and distributed at the fair. These events will take place in Turin's Quadrilatero Romano, outside of the fair area.
- Geometria nelle mani, an exhibition of a series of six photographs by Giuseppe Penone, which were recently acquired by the UniCredit Art Collection. The exhibition will be held in the Salotto UniCredit (Living UniCredit).
- UniCredit STUDIO, a project that displays work by emerging artists in exhibition spaces located in our bank branches, will be recreated at the fair to exhibit a special selection of artwork.
The four different sections of ARTISSIMA - Back to the Future, Main Section, New Entries and Present Future - will explore various aspects of the world of contemporary art.
