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 pioneers of contemporary art (Back to the Future) and to the drawing (Disegni). The three curated sections will be hosted in the fair pavilion with monographic booths, and on the dedicated digital platform Artissima Voice Over with an indepth presentation.
In 2023, the fair was hosted from 3 to 5 November (2 November preview by invitation) at Oval Lingotto in Torino.
The fair is curated by Artissima Srl, a company connected with the Fondazione Torino Musei.
