The 2023 Week of Contemporary Arts in Turin is a must-attend for those who love modern art. Turin transforms into a fascinating stage where contemporary creativity reaches its zenith.

In this article, we will explore what makes this event so special and what to expect during the 2023 Week of Contemporary Arts in Turin.

The Magic of Contemporary Art in Turin
Turin is a city rich in history and culture, but it also serves as a beacon for new artistic trends. The Week of Contemporary Arts is a time when the city's streets become a stage for modern art. Its streets, museums, galleries, and public spaces come alive with artworks that challenge traditional perceptions and invite deep reflection.

The Significance of the Week of Contemporary Arts
The Week of Contemporary Arts in Turin is so much more than a cultural event. It promotes the growth of contemporary arts, fosters the exchange of ideas, and inspires new generations of artists. It's an opportunity to broaden artistic horizons and embrace new forms of expression.

City Events


Contemporary Art Exhibitions: Art enthusiasts will have the opportunity to explore exhibitions by world-renowned artists and emerging talents, offering an in-depth look into the creative minds of our time.

Once again, ARTISSIMA - International Contemporary Art Fair will take place from November 3 to 5 (with a preview on November 2) at the Oval Lingotto in Turin. The leading contemporary art fair in Italy, ARTISSIMA, has, since its founding in 1994, combined international market presence with a strong focus on experimentation and research.

In addition to the fair (Main Section, Monologue/Dialogue, New Entries, Art Spaces & Editions), Artissima consists of three curated sections directed by boards of international curators and museum directors, dedicated to emerging artists (Present Future), rediscovering pioneers of contemporary art (Back to the Future), and drawing (Disegni). These curated sections will be presented in the fair pavilion with monographic stands and on the Artissima Voice Over platform with dedicated insights.

Paratissima CIRCUS, the most explosive Turin kermesse of Contemporary Art, dedicates this year's edition to one of the world's oldest forms of expression. Poetic in nature, this is partly due to the original vocation of the spaces of the Cavallerizza Reale, an academy designated by Duke Carlo Emanuele for the education of court pages in equestrian art, a theater in the courtly riding school designed by Benedetto Alfieri in 1763.

FROM NOVEMBER 3 TO 6, 2022, IN THE EVOCATIVE SPACES OF THE CAVALLERIZZA COMPLEX, PARATISSIMA GIVES LIFE TO THE ANNUAL APPOINTMENT WITH THE ART WEEK OF TURIN. 1 FAIR, 4 DAYS, OVER 200 ARTISTS ON DISPLAY. The event takes the form of a grand celebration of artistic and exhibition contents, with 9 curated exhibitions, 5 art galleries, 9 Special Projects, 3 Guest Projects, Open Studio of artist residences and studios, Live Performances, talks, and workshops.

The Others - Art Fair | Pavilion 3 - Turin Expositions, a revolutionary project born with the aim of capturing the language of new generations and valuing emerging realities. It is an experimental review that presents the most innovative national and international artistic expressions. The Others is an independent fair, a short circuit of a self-referential art system, a true "Factory" of emerging small realities, a privileged meeting place for the newest voices and the most powerful artistic trends. A curatorial fair: artistic direction is entrusted to a team of young curators to better interpret the languages and decipher the codes of artistic expressions of new generations and propose a cutting-edge observatory on the global creative community.

Public Art Installations: The streets of Turin turn into an open-air gallery with public art installations that interact with the surrounding environment in surprising ways.
This is Luci d’Artista, an open-air museum of luminous works, celebrating its 25th edition this year, dedicated to its creator Fiorenzo Alfieri.

Live Performances: Live performances that take art out of museums and into the squares, engaging the audience in unforgettable experiences.

C2C Festival was born in the early 2000s as Club To Club, in Turin.
With each annual edition, C2C Festival defines the musical agenda in Italy by presenting the best of Italian creativity alongside internationally renowned artists, highlighting evolving transglobal scenarios.
