The exhibition Where traces fade away will take place from October 26 to November 12 in Turin (Preview October 24).

Built upon the mission of Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT to highlight the value of its collection, and curated by ArtissimaWhere traces fade away is a pathway through five sites in the centre of Torino. The exhibition is a rediscovery of the city through the experience of five works from the collection of Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT acquired over the span of the last 20 years, which have become part of the museum holdings of GAMGalleria Civica d’Arte Moderna di Torino and Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea.

Luigi Fassi, Director of Artissima, described the exhibition as “a narrative of the relationship between macro-history and micro-history, through iconic works by selected artists, in which the evolution of events that have marked the progress of historical processes is accompanied by reflections that interpret social upheaval from an intimate perspective, making room for the subjectivity of artists and the cultural history of the territory”.

Each work constructs a circumstantial relationship with its theme of reference, demonstrating how geopolitical shifts, the transitions of global history and the search for self-knowledge have been observed by artists from elusive perspectives, penetrating beyond superficial traces and evidence to reveal new realities and novel imaginaries. As suggested by one of the greatest voices of Italian poetry in the 20th century, Piero Bigongiari, it is “where traces fade away, where nothing more can be read”, that the space of knowledge of art and poetic expression opens up.

The iconic locations of the exhibition and the artists involved are:

Palazzo Perrone di San Martino—headquarters of Fondazione CRT and Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT, with Francesco Gennari (Pesaro, Italy, 1973) / Palazzo Madama—Museo Civico d’Arte Antica of Torino with Peter Friedl (Oberneukirchen, Austria, 1960) / Museo del Risorgimento with Cally Spooner (Ascot, United Kingdom, 1983) / Teatro Carignano with William Kentridge (Johannesburg, South Africa, 1955) / Teatro Regio of Torino with Simon Starling (Epsom, United Kingdom, 1967).
