International Fair of Contemporary Art in Turin

Artissima 15
November 7 – 9, 2008
Preview and Opening November 6, 2008

Lingotto Fiere, Turin


Artissima came to an end last November amid great acclaim from the media and the public. The Italian and international press talked about the fair in highly appreciative terms, describing it as an authentic breath of fresh air and innovation in the world of European art fairs. This success was fully borne out by the enthusiasm of collectors and gallery owners, who for the first time talked about Turin as the “ideal” place for business. Artissima has thus become a truly high-quality fair, concentrating on the works of young artists in a sophisticated cultural climate which is also relaxed and extremely pleasant.

The Fair is working on an even more radical and decisive comeback in 2008.

Artissima 15 will be radically new, with a new approach to the displays (new walls and lighting), to the cultural events (innovative exhibitions and activities both inside the pavilion and out) and to the hospitality (extraordinary gastronomic offerings in and around the fair, and an après-festival organised by the artists themselves with electronic music and happenings).

During the same week as Artissima, the T2, the Torino Triennale will be opening in town. Curated by Daniel Birnbaum this year, the exhibition looks all set to be an event of enormous interest, which will bring top-level visitors to the city.
