Public days: 6 - 8 November 2020

JaguArt

JaguArt is an innovative art project created through interaction between Artissima and Jaguar, with the shared desire to support emerging art and to trigger fertile long-term synergies of collaboration.

JaguArt takes the form of a true Road Show reaching major Italian cities, searching for new talents in the field of the visual arts.

10 Italian cities, 10 Jaguar dealerships, 10 contemporary art galleries, 10 fine arts academies, 10 artists: these are the protagonists of an itinerary that will conclude with the 2020 edition of Artissima in Torino, after having visited Milano, Torino, Bologna, Venezia, Genova, Roma, Napoli, Firenze, Brescia and Catania.

In each of the cities of the Road Show, a jury composed of Ilaria Bonacossa, director of Artissima, an artist or a curator and a representative of the participating gallery will select one young talent, leading to the opportunity to show work at Artissima 2020 in a group exhibition involving all ten winners.

JaguArt has the aim of underlining the fact that the bond between tradition and innovation is a central focus of our time. It is a fundamental dichotomy in the educational practice of any art school, making contemporary artists aware of the works of the great masters. The dialogue between past and future forms the basis of the strategic approach of Jaguar – and of art – to contemporary society and its narration.
