#ArtissimaLive | Artissima’s 2017 edition with Ilaria Bonacossa
5 November 2017#ArtissimaLive
For the new #ArtissimaLive appointment, the Portuguese platform Aujourd’huihas met Ilaria Bonacossa, the new director of Artissima, to discover the 24th Fair’s edition hightlights.
First of all, can you tell us a little bit about yourself? Who is Ilaria Bonacossa?
I am a curator who has studied art history first and then curatorial studies in New York. I have worked in museums preparing shows of Italian and international emerging artists, and I am always involved in the conception and production of new shows and installations, so the gallery world is not new to me. In fact when you work with emerging talents galleries are crucial partners, so a fair is not such a big leap away from my institutional career. Also my first significant work position was as curator at Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Torino; working with an important and cutting-edge collection, I learned a lot about the mechanisms of the art world.
