per l’Arte


The Family office confirms its support to Artissima, promoting, during the Turin art week, a series of initiatives dedicated to art and economics.
On Saturday, November 4, the Tosetti Value Photography Award will be awarded to the artist whose photographic work is considered most effective in understanding the socio-historical and economic situation of our globalized world. The Prize, now in its fourth edition, is in close relationship with “Perspectives. The Economy of Images,” a project on contemporary photography created in 2014 and curated by Tosetti Value for Art with the aim of fueling debates and reflections on our globalized world through exhibitions and talks in synergy with the Family office’s macroeconomic research.

Always as part of the Project “Perspectives. The Economy of Images,” the Talk American Metamorphosis will be held on Saturday, November 4 at 12:30 p.m. at the Fair Meeting Point.
November 4 is a memorable date in American history. In 1980 Ronald Reagan defeated the incumbent President Jimmy Carter, and his Reaganomics opened a decade of economic liberalization, growth and inequality, hedonism and commercialization of art. On another November 4, in 2008, Barack Obama becomes the first U.S. president of Afro-American descent, after 43 white males. The US weekly Time magazine designates him “person of the year,” and in 2009 he is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
Two events that forever changed the face of America, and that a great artist — Francesco Jodice — and a prestigious journalist — Mario Calabresi — both profound connoisseurs of the United States of America, will retrace to outline another American story. From the “gold rush” to Artificial Intelligence, through jazz and melting pot, Francesco Jodice and Mario Calabresi, will lead us into the folds of America, a land of borders and utopias, of philanthropy and prejudice, where art remains eternally suspended between reality and the fiction of the American Dream myth.

The 30th edition of Artissima, will be held from Thursday, November 2 to Sunday, November 5, 2023, under the Direction of Luigi Fassi and will feature the participation of 181 mostly foreign Galleries from 33 different countries in Europe, America, Africa and Asia.
Among these galleries, 68 will propose monographic and curated projects to better present the work of their artists to the public and to demonstrate that Artissima, in addition to being the only Fair in Italy entirely dedicated to contemporary art, is also the Fair that has been most successful in combining the commercial dimension with that of research and curating.
The Guiding Theme of this edition, which marks an important anniversary for Artissima, is Relations of Care from an essay by Brazilian anthropologist Renzo Taddei, one of the most influential and innovative voices in contemporary anthropology. Renzo Taddei envisions all the relationships that make up the fabric of our lives as a special form of care. In this light, art, with its multiplicity of languages and the imaginary created by artists, embodies better than other disciplines the concept of care that underlies our existence.
