Turin: DAMA

October 30, 2019 - November 3, 2019

Dama turin

DAMA edition 2019

LETO, Warsaw: Radek Szlaga

PIKTOGRAM, Warsaw: Krystian Truth Czaplicki

The fourth edition of DAMA is coming with many new features!

From this year on, the venue has changed to offer the public an adjusted and more specific experience. Split between two historical palaces right in the city center the upcoming edition aims at emphasising the importance of the relationship between gallery owners, artists and visitors, by reducing the exhibitors and enlarging the space dedicated to the Live Programme.

The exhibition will start at Palazzo Coardi di Carpeneto in Via Maria Vittoria 26, next to the famous Piazza Carlina, which is about to re-open to the public after a significant refurbishment. The show will consist of 11 international galleries selected by curator Domenico de Chirico, and will present site-specific interventions by 11 emerging artists, thus establishing a dialogue with the baroque architecture of the palace.

DAMA 2019’s exhibitors come from different countries including Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, Switzerland and Italy.

Live Programme:

Located within a short walking distance from the main venue, Palazzo Birago di Borgaro in Via Carlo Alberto 16, will host the Live Programme thanks to the partnership established in 2018 with the Camera di Commercio di Torino.

Swiss curator Elise Lammer, who is curator at SALTS near Basel and the founder of performance research platform Alpina Huus, was invited to curate a selection of videos and performances around the notions of empowerment and resilience.

The invited artists are:

  • Bekim Sébastien Krivaqa
  • Lonely Boys
  • Caroline Mesquita
  • Adrian Piper
  • Dorian Sari

This year’s Live Programme is supported by its main sponsor, Compagnia di San Paolo together with Fondazione Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT and with special support from Gallery Wilde in Basel.

Furthermore, since this edition, Fondazione Rivoli 2 will reward one of the participating galleries with the prize EyAR2, which allows to acquire one work for the collection. The winner is selected by a committee of members composed of: Nicoletta Castellaneta, Domenico de Chirico, Umberto Di Marino, Pier Luigi Guzzetti and Giuseppe Maraniello.

We also have the pleasure to confirm media partnerships with a selection of specialized magazines, including Artuu, Artviewer, CURA., Exibart, MyArtGuides, KubaParis and to start a collaboration with Arte e Critica and Contemporary Lynx that are joining DAMA this year.

Further detail will be disclosed during the press conference on Wednesday 16th October at Palazzo Birago di Borgaro in Via Carlo Alberto 16, Turin.
