More to discover:
Opium Den
A fully fledged curatorial project—the first of its kind for an art fair—the VIP Lounge will turn into an “opium den,” offering an immersive and sumptuous aesthetic experience, an artist’s visual essay, and intertwining suggestions, collections, images and visions.

In Mostra
A true museum exhibition within the fair, In Mostra brings together outstanding art from the contemporary collections in Piedmont and is constructed around the concept of “inclination” in its literary, scientific, philosophical and political sense.

Torino’s art scene
During Artissima, Torino will offer a great number of exhibitions in its museums and institutions, such as TUTTTOVERO, a two-part-show curated by Francesco Bonami at GAM and Castello di Rivoli Museo d’ Arte Contemporanea; Rachel Rose: illy Present Future 2014 Prize Exhibition at Castello di Rivoli Museo d’ Arte Contemporanea; Adrián Villar Rojas at Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo; Christian Boltanski: Dopo at Fondazione Merz; Ed Ruscha: MIXMASTER at Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli; Boris Mikhailov: Ukraine at Camera (the new center for photography in town); and Vanità Vanitas, a group show at the MEF Museo Ettore Fico.
