From 2 May to 2 June 2024, the regional capital city of Piedmont will host the first edition of EXPOSED Torino Foto Festival, Turin’s new international festival of photography. The 2024 Festival focuses on New Landscapes – Nuovi Paesaggi, echoing one of the main topics of Italy’s tradition in photography, offering a reflection of the modern evolution of the medium, of the main challenges and innovations of the world of images in its programme of temporary exhibitions, meetings, talks, and events in Turin’s main cultural institutions.

Menno Liauw and Salvatore Vitale, Director and Artistic Director of FUTURES, an international platform with 19 major European art institutions with an impact and influence in the world of photography, were selected as EXPOSED Art Directors through an international public process.

“We wish to concentrate on an innovative and inclusive approach to attract a mixed local and international public, with a diverse programme that includes various approaches in photography: from classical to contemporary, cross-media, installations and performative photography. Cooperation and collectivity are key aspects – says Menno Liauw – and highlight the multidisciplinary and kaleidoscopic nature of EXPOSED. A range of visions, approaches, ideas and projects make the Festival, and thus also the city of Turin, an inclusive meeting point open to the world.”

“We are presenting projects that are often the result of long-term research on the social developments of a community. Such projects exceed the boundaries of aesthetics, but start exchanges, raise awareness and inspire social changes. We intend to show the impact art can have on our perception of the world, from local communities to global issues, through the lenses of many artists” – underlines Salvatore Vitale.

The programme of the first edition of EXPOSED lists over 20 temporary exhibitions, an artistic commission, two days of talks, an educational platform, a fair of independent publishers, meetings, screenings, portfolio readings and other events, enabled by the involvement in planning and production of the city’s main institutions, the independent organizations and the players of the city’s and international artistic landscape.
