Artissima is the main contemporary art fair in Italy. Since its foundation in 1994, it has combined its presence on the international market with a great attention to experimentation and research. Over 190 galleries from all over the world participate in the fair every year. In addition to the exhibition, Artissima consists of three artistic sections directed by curators and directors of international museums, dedicated to emerging artists, to the design and rediscovery of the great pioneers of contemporary art. The fair is curated by Artissima srl, a company that belongs to the Torino Musei Foundation.
