Turin’s New International Festival of Photography and the Expanded project

From 2 May to 2 June 2024, the regional capital city of Piedmont will host the first edition of EXPOSED Torino Foto Festival, Turin’s new international festival of photography, promoted by the City of Turin, the Piedmont Region, the Turin Chamber of Commerce, Intesa Sanpaolo, Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo and Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT, in synergy with Fondazione CRT, and is organised by Fondazione per la Cultura Torino.

EXPOSED is: an event to highlight once again the city’s cultural and artistic vocation, that views creativity and innovation projects as one of the main drivers of the development and growth of the area, and not just as a tourist attraction. The 2024 Festival focuses on New Landscapes – Nuovi Paesaggi, echoing one of the main topics of Italy’s tradition in photography, offering a reflection of the modern evolution of the medium, of the main challenges and innovations of the world of images in its programme of temporary exhibitions, meetings, talks, and events in Turin’s main cultural institutions.

Menno Liauw and Salvatore Vitale, Director and Artistic Director of FUTURES, an international platform with 19 major European art institutions with an impact and influence in the world of photography, were selected as EXPOSED Art Directors through an international public process.

The programme of the first edition of EXPOSED lists over 20 temporary exhibitions, an artistic commission, two days of talks, an educational platform, a fair of independent publishers, meetings, screenings, portfolio readings and other events, enabled by the involvement in planning and production of the city’s main institutions, the independent organizations and the players of the city’s and international artistic landscape.

Among the exhibitions produced by EXPOSED in collaboration with partner organisations, the Foundation is pleased to announce Expanded, a project originating from the Collection of Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT, is coming to life in EXPOSED and will unite an exhibition in three chapters in a single coherent path at the venues of Castello di Rivoli, GAM – Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea and OGR Torino.

Expanded With at the Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, curated by Marcella Beccaria, presents works in which the photographic medium is the starting point for investigating different types of relationship with the landscape, with works by pioneers of Land Art, Arte Povera and Body Art.

In Expanded Without (2 May – 31 July 2024) at Binario 1 hall of OGR Torino, the focus is instead on works where the image is produced without resorting to the traditional photographic medium: visitors will find installations, authentic experiential fields, within which the viewer becomes part of the image construction process.

Finally, Expanded – I Paesaggi dell’Arte (3 May – 1 September 2024) at GAM – Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Torino, curated by Elena Volpato, dedicated to a series of photographers who have been able to portray the many aspects of art and, in the broadest sense, its landscapes made up of works and architecture, the faces of artists and their moments of work in the studio or in nature.
