Artissima is ready to unveil its new form. An Unplugged model spreading across times and spaces, combining physical exhibitions with digital projects: an acoustic version of the fair that focuses on the instrument (the artworks) and the voice (the galleries).
在实体部分，Artissima将于2020年11月7日至2021年1月9日（11月5日和6日为VIP日）在都灵博物馆基金会的三间博物馆中（GAM—现代与当代艺术馆，Palazzo Madama—古代艺术馆和MAO—东方艺术馆）举办三个展览项目。这些展览由Ilaria Bonacossa策划，主题为“狂热的停滞”。展览将包含今年入选博览会的大部分画廊提供的艺术作品。
In its physical guise, Artissima will present three exhibition projects in the museums of Fondazione Torino Musei (GAM - Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Palazzo Madama - Museo Civico d’Arte Antica and MAO - Museo d’Arte Orientale), from 7 November 2020 to 9 January 2021 (with VIP days November 5 and 6). These shows, sharing the theme Frenetic Standstill and curated by Ilaria Bonacossa, will include artworks provided by most of the galleries selected for the fair this year.
Galerie Urs Meile is delighted that our artists Qiu Shihua (born 1940 in Zizhong, Sichuan Province, China) and Ju Ting (born 1983 in Shandong Province, China) are included in the exhibition at GAM respectively MAO.

The selected theme, Frenetic Standstill, links back to a term from the philosophical-political sphere that indicates away of thinking and acting involving rapid decision-making processes, but which precisely because it is lacking in in-depth investigation leads to changes of only limited efficacy. A theme at the centre of current debate, which also represents an interesting key of interpretation of these pastmonths, marked by a succession of different degrees and methods of lockdown. It is an invitation to think about the concept of acceleration as opposed to inertia, and about the increasingly urgent need to change our paradigms and to seek possible responses to the present crisis. Responses that could and should also be suggested by a profound, pondered cultural and social evolution channeled by art, which has always borne witness to past histories and civilizations, while acting as a catalyst for the most innovative visions.
在数字化的环境下，Artissima将推出两个虚拟项目。第一个是ArtissimaXYZ，一个不同寻常的跨媒体平台，涵盖了由Ilaria Gianni和Fernanda Brenner策划的 "现在的未来"，由Lorenzo Giusti和Mouna Mekouar策划的 "回到未来"，以及由Letizia Ragaglia和Bettina Steinbrügge策划的"Disegni"（在线时间为2020年11月3日至12月9日）。第二个是在线目录，探索主展区的各间画廊，艺术家及艺术品、新作品、对话/独白、艺术空间和项目（在线时间为2020年11月5日至12月9日）。
In its digital guise, Artissima will launch two virtual projects. The first is ArtissimaXYZ, an unusual cross-media platform covering the curated sections: Present Future curated by Ilaria Gianni and Fernanda Brenner, Back to the Future curated by Lorenzo Giusti and Mouna Mekouar, and Disegni curatedby Letizia Ragaglia and Bettina Steinbrügge (online from 3 November to 9 December 2020). The second is the online catalogue, to explore the galleries, artists and artworks of the Main Section, New Entries, Dialogue/Monologue, Art Spaces & Editions (online from 5 November to 9 December 2020).
Once again, also thanks to fair’s synergy with the cultural and artistic institutions of the City and Piedmont Region, November will be an opportunity to explore and enjoy contemporary art in new ways.
