Public days:


MADE IN stems from the desire to create a dialogue between contemporary art and the flourishing business community of Turin, enhancing the territory in which the fair was born and has grown, with which it constantly activates synergic relations that reflect the particular characteristics of the region, adding to Turin’s renown all over the world.

The project organized by Artissima with the support of the Chamber of Commerce of Turin has been developed in partnership with Carioca, Mattioli, Pattern Group and Prima Industrie, with the coordination of Sonia Belfiore, founder of Ultravioletto Arte + Impresa.

Starting from the idea that corporate know-how and specialized production processes can represent a resource for the creation of works of art by artists, MADE IN is configured as an academy for 4 young talents that allows them to live inside companies, to absorb and incorporate the technological and operative capabilities with which they come into contact within their own research. During the residency, the artists will also interact with 4 prestigious Turin-based galleries from the Artissima circuit, which will monitor the works in a role of “project godmothers”, offering the artists a chance to come to terms with entrepreneurial factors in the world of art as well.

The young talents selected will each be paired with one of the 4 companies with which they will begin to collaborate in the month of March 2023, completing the production of their works by 30 June 2023 *. They will be assisted along the path of production of the work by the team of Artissima and Sonia Belfiore. They can rely on the partner company for workmanship, materials and labour, and/or other previously agreed benefits, and they will have the possibility of interaction with exceptional figures, including the most prestigious Turin-based galleries, to discover the world of entrepreneurial activity and experimentation.

* Each artist will be provided with a production budget and a hospitality budget.

The call for participation is now open, and the deadline is 26 January 2023. (To apply download the call in Italian here below).
