Artissima is Italy’s most important contemporary art fair. Since its establishment in 1994, it has combined the presence of an international market with a focus on experimentation and research.
Galleries from around the world participate every year. In addition to the fair (Main Section, Monologue/Dialogue, New Entries, Art Spaces & Editions), Artissima is also composed of three curated sections, headed by a board of international curators and museum directors, devoted to emerging artists (Present Future), to the rediscovery of the great pioneers of contemporary art (Back to the Future) and to the drawing (Disegni). From this year, the three curated sections will once again be hosted in the fair pavilion with monographic booths, and on a dedicated digital platform with an indepth presentation.
The fair is curated by Artissima Srl, a company connected with the Fondazione Torino Musei.
