Artissima 2016 recommendations, Nov 3 – 6

31 October 2016

The Artissima international fair of contemporary art is taking place at various locations across Turin, running from November 3 to 6.

Now in its 23rd edition, the renowned project brings together 193 galleries from 34 countries, and is host to over 52,000 visitors. Directed by Sarah Cosulich, this year’s Main Section of the fair will be held at the Oval in the glass pavilion that was originally built for the 2006 Winter Olympic Games.

The fair is split into seven sections: The Main Section, which includes 105 carefully selected galleries, Back to the Future, focussing on the re-discovery of avant-garde works, Present Future, dedicated to emerging artists, Per4m, devoted exclusively to performance art, New Entries for emerging galleries, and Art Editions, which hosts limited prints and editions, as well as Dialogue, a section for specific commissioned projects.
