Artissima: Sections and Curators

Main Section

Main Section brings together outstanding galleries from the international art world: established names offer collectors and art lovers an event of the highest quality.

Dialogue/Monologue is reserved to emerging galleries or galleries with an experimental approach applying with either a monographic booth or with a dialogue of works by 2 artists.

New Entries presents the most interesting emerging galleries from the international art scene, that have been open less than 5 years and taking part in Artissima for the first time.

The section is supported by Marval Collection.

Art Spaces & Editions is a special section of Artissima exclusively devoted to galleries and non-profit spaces presenting editions, prints and multiples by contemporary artists.

Present Future is reserved to emerging talents, preferably less than 40 years old. The artists will be selected on the basis of specific projects which will be presented by their reference galleries or research spaces. The section features monographic projects with the goal of shedding light on new trends on the international art scene.

Starting from 2020 Present Future is virtually hosted on the Artissima XYZ digital platform, accompanied in 2021 by a physical collective display within the exhibition pavilion.

Back to the Future is the section of Artissima that presents monographic projects by great pioneers of contemporary art of the last century, who are still active today. The section hosts artworks realised starting from 1960 in dialogue with recent artworks, and it aims to bring international artists who have played a fundamental role in contemporary art back into the limelight. For the general public, Back to the Future is a unique opportunity to get to know important works from those years in a dialogue with today’s experimentation.

Starting from 2020 Back to the Future is virtually hosted on the Artissima XYZ digital platform, accompanied in 2021 by a physical collective display within the exhibition pavilion.

Curatorial Committe:
Lorenzo Giusti, director GAMeC — Bergamo

Disegni is the section of Artissima that presents monographic projects dedicated to the most contemporary experimentations with the practice of drawing, originally associated with paper and then radically evolved. The section is intended to celebrate an artistic discipline capable of expressing the immediacy of and the thinking behind the creative gesture, existing in a space suspended between idea and finished work.

Starting from 2020 Disegni is virtually hosted on the Artissima XYZ digital platform, accompanied in 2021 by a physical collective display within the exhibition pavilion.
