EventWhere traces fade away

Where traces fade away


The project is distributed across five locations in the centre of Torino, a way of rediscovering the city through the experience of five works from the collection of Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT acquired over the last 20 years and conserved in the museum holdings of GAM – Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Torino, and Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea. The exhibition curated by Artissima narrates the relationship between general history and micro-history, in iconic works by the selected artists in which the evolution of events marking the unfolding of historical processes is accompanied by reflections that interpret epochal upheavals in a more intimate, impenetrable context, making room for the flow of personal events, the subjectivity of artists and the cultural history of the territory. Each work constructs a circumstantial relationship with its theme of reference, demonstrating how geopolitical shifts, the transitions of global history and the search for self-knowledge have been observed by artists from elusive perspectives, penetrating beyond superficial traces and evidence to reveal new realities and novel imaginaries. As suggested by one of the greatest voices of Italian poetry in the 20th century, Piero Bigongiari, it is where traces fade away, where nothing more can be read, that the space of knowledge of art and poetic expression opens up. The exhibition will also be open from 26 to 29 October and from 9 to 12 November.

All the locations*, from Thursday to Sunday (26-29 October, 2-5 November, 9-12 November 2023), from 11am to 3pm. *Teatro Regio from 11am to 1pm
