Artissima16: “Present Future” of Art The International Fair of Contemporary Art in Turin, 2009 edition

Turin has the pleasure to present the 16th edition of Artissima, the International Fair of Contemporary Art, which will take place from 6th to 8th November 2009 in the area of Lingotto Fiere.


This extraordinary exhibition represents one of the more prestigious events dedicated to future horizons of present art and to its experiments. It’s an unfailing occasion for both simple lovers and expert collectors. The fair provides the opportunity to meet artists coming from all over the world, to think about the present changes in the field of art, to convey young emerging authors and art galleries of the new generation. Here names and trends that tomorrow will matter are chosen, here “the present future” of art is planned.


The newest artistic expressions are presented to visitors divided into several sections:


- Main Section: dedicated to exclusive galleries at the height of fame and with high quality works on display;


- New Entries: the section for young avant-garde galleries taking part in Artissima for the first time;


- Present Future: devoted to 17 emerging talents selected among the best of worldwide art scene;


- Constellations: a selection of large-format (and large ambitions) works.


At the fair, for visitors it will also be possible to buy some works and to participate in guided tours with famous critics.


In addition, we remind you that also the calendar of side events is very rich. It is centered on “Blinding the Ears”, a cultural project entirely aimed to explore the relationships between visual arts and theatre, a 5 days long thematic journey and several shows, such as original plays, performances and live concerts, located in the most important theatres in Turin.


Furthermore, during the entire month of November a huge calendar rich of exhibitions and events will be offered in Turin, both in museums and institutions, and in streets and squares. The most exciting moment will be on Saturday 7th November, the Night of Contemporary Art… a special occasion to enjoy a different kind of night… save the date!
