ARTISSIMA 19: The Famed Contemporary Art Fair Returns to Turin
For the 10th consecutive year, UniCredit is once again the main partner of the 19th annual ARTISSIMA international contemporary art fair, which will run from November 9 to 11, 2012 at the Oval Lingotto Fiere in Turin.
The title for this year's event, "It's Not the End of the World," is in response to the Mayan prophecy that the world will end on December 21, 2012 and the ongoing challenges resulting from the global economic crisis.
Many new artists will be introduced at the fair this year thanks to those leading art galleries in Italy and abroad, which remain committed to showcasing new talent and projects to the contemporary art world.
UniCredit will celebrate its 10th year at ARTISSIMA by exhibiting a selection of works by Francesco Jodice, Claudia Losi and David Reimondo - all internationally renowned artists who are represented in the UniCredit Art Collection - in its Salotto UniCredit. In addition, there will be a screening of a video produced by UniCredit, which follows Reimondo creating his most recent work.
Despite the challenging economic environment, UniCredit continues to be a strong supporter of ARTISSIMA. Our Group believes that art and culture sparks innovation and inspires the social and economic development of the many communities where we live and work.
