A shared experimental orientation has led Artissima and Torino Social Impact to organise a project that widens the perimeter of action of social innovation to include contemporary art and culture. Focussing on the visibility of talents from all backgrounds in the Italian contemporary art world, ART AWARD proposes role models capable of making even the most unexpected paths more accessible. The ART AWARD process will be presented at the fair, leading to development starting in November 2019.

ART AWARD is a competition for young talents, an educational project, a residency, and an innovative system of art production, that will premiere at Artissima 2019 during a talk the 3rd of November at 3pm at The Meeting Point.

At the presentation will attend Ilaria Bonacossa – Director of Artissima, Mario Calderini, Polytechnic of Milano, School of Management, Antonio Damasco, Director Rete Italiana Cultura Popolare.
