Produced by EXPOSED. Torino Foto Festival, in collaboration with Artissima and the active participation of some of its exhibitors, All These Fleeting Perfections is a group exhibition that anticipates several questions that will be explored by the festival, from 2 May to 2 June 2024, in its first edition titled New Landscapes – Nuovi paesaggi. Along a pathway of photographs, videos, installations and paintings, selected from the artists of the galleries taking part in the fair, the exhibition, curated by Domenico Quaranta, investigates the post-photographic dimension as the complex persistence of representation in images, a way of relating to reality that is most clearly expressed through photography. The “fleeting perfections” suggested by the title represent everything that if only for a few instants has contributed to define the essence of photography itself: obsolete but never completely surmountable ways of seeing, still aspiring to their own incomparable absoluteness.
