Artissima 2024: application now open

12 March 2024 Journal News

A crucial event for professionals and art lovers, Artissima 2024 will take place from 1 to 3 November in Torino (Preview October 31), directed by Luigi Fassi.

The only Italian fair exclusively focusing on contemporary art, Artissima stands out on the international scene for its experimental, cutting-edge, and sophisticated identity, and for its high-quality exhibits.

The 2024 edition of the fair is composed of 4 flagship sections (Main Section, Monologue/Dialogue, New Entries, Art Spaces & Editions) and 3 curated sections (Present Future, Back to the Future, Disegni), presented both physically at the fair and virtually on the digital platform Artissima Voice Over.

A new theme will symbolically run through the sections – THE ERA OF DAYDREAMING. Daydreaming is a central manifestation of spontaneous thought and a catalyst for future-oriented creation. Increasingly revalued by neuroscientists, philosophers and artists, it is a familiar everyday experience: the mind’s ability to self-generate internal dialogue and process one’s own life story through ever-evolving forms of visual thought. Crucial to creative thinking and artistic production, daydreaming is a spontaneous force that activates hopes, emotions and imaginaries, shaping the world to come and orienting it according to our expectations.
