PARATISSIMA 2010, From 3 to 7 November, San Salvario – TURIN- Italy
For the sixth consecutive year, Gruppo Para, in collaboration with the association Ylda, is organising a collective exhibition for young artists one of the main events of “Contemporary Art”. Paratissima 2010 will take place from 3 to 7 November, and like the previous year, will be hosted in the San Salvario quarter of Turin.
The sixth edition of Paratissima, the “happening” exhibition of contemporary art, is dedicated to analogies between the kitchen, the “laboratory” of the house and the multiethnic area of San Salvario.
Just as the kitchen is an area for discovering new pleasures as well as the conservation and preparation of food, so San Salvario is the location for creative and artisan activities and the forms a framework for emerging talent.
In 2009, Paratissima came of age, 375 artists, 76 events, 39 private sponsors and 69 businesses of San Salvario were involved, to which must be added 43 non-commercial spaces transformed into locations for exhibitions. The number of visitors was estimated at 40,000.
This year, Paratissima 2010 will again repeat its role as the alternative event to ARTissima, offering a place for young talent, artists not yet established, to exhibit, spiced up with DJ sets, food, drink and live performances. Paratissima utilises various locations in San Salvario, from local bars, businesses and appartments to public spaces. The artists, from around the world, can exhibit their own work with the sole condition that they respect their host location.
Given the nature of the event, its aims, participants and regional collaboration, it will be supported by the Region of Piemonte, the City of Torino and Circoscrizione 8 (the quarter of San Salvario), it forms part of the calendar of Contemporary Arts Torino Piemonte and the Torino Youth European Capital, and is also assisted by the Camera di Commercio, by the Fondazione per l’Arte della FCRT, the Compagnia di San Paolo and by various private sponsors.
