JaguArt is an innovative artistic project launched in 2019 thanks to the dialogue between Artissima and Jaguar Land Rover, based on a shared desire to support emerging art and to trigger fertile long-term synergies of collaboration.
A true Road Show across Italy in search of young talents in the visual arts, culminating with the announcement of the overall winner of the 28th edition of Artissima (5-7 November 2021).
10 Italian cities, 10 Jaguar Land Rover dealerships, 10 contemporary art galleries, 10 Academies of Fine Arts, and 10 artists are the protagonists of a journey across the cities of Milano, Torino, Catania, Roma, Venezia, Firenze, Genova, Napoli, Bologna, Brescia.
On the occasion of each stop, a jury of experts consisting of curators, gallery owners and collectors have selected the winning young talent (discover all the stops here).
The 10 winning artists and Jaguart finalists are: Matteo Pizzolante, winner of the Milano stop, Luca Arboccò – Torino, Francesco Tagliavia – Catania, Camilla Gurgone – Roma, Boris Contarin – Venezia, Stefano Giuri – Firenze, Marco-Augusto Basso – Genova, Teresa Gargiulo – Napoli, Camilla Riscassi – Bologna e Federica Francesconi – Brescia.
Following the stop caused by the pandemic and the events of Milano and Torino held between 2019 and 2020, JaguArt resumes with 8 gallery appointments, from 25th June to 22th July, which will have each of the winning finalists exploiting the important opportunity the project brings, that is the dialogue with a gallery that could represent them in the art market.
Starting from September, a group exhibition featuring the works of the 10 finalists will tour all over Italy stopping in the Jaguar Land Rover dealerships in Roma, Genova, Napoli, Bologna and Brescia to end up in Artissima and be presented to the public of the fair.
To get to know better the 10 finalists, you can explore the two group shows organized in 2020: the first one held at the Chalet de l’Ange in Courmayeur, which for the entire Winter season became the centre of the initiatives of Jaguar Land Rover, in partnership with the municipality of Courmayeur; the second was hosted at GAM–Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Torino.
A special perspective on the two exhibitions is narrated in the video below: a guided tour led by Ilaria Bonacossa (Director of Artissima) to let you discover more about the artists and their works.
