In 2014 Artissima launches Per4m, the new section of the fair focusing exclusively on performance: a very innovative project in terms of presentation of the performance art in a fair context.
Premio Sardi per l’Arte Back to the Future is the new award for the section of the same name.
The cultural projects of Artissima 2014 include also the second edition of One Torino, a unique and versatile exhibition titled SHIT AND DIE and curated by Maurizio Cattelan, Myriam Ben Salah and Marta Papini.
SHIT AND DIE is the result of a research focusing on Torino, the main source of inspiration. At the same time the themes approached by the initiative remain those of life and the ambiguities of the human condition. The project, created by the three curators for what was once the residence of Conte Cavour and rooted in the cultural, historical and artistic heritage of the city, examines the present and its collective imaginary. Bringing together mysterious memories, curious stories and the phantoms of Torino, the show intertwines objects from the city with works by 60 artists in an original itinerary full of doubts and questions.
