Artissima 2013


Artissima has just announced the names of the artists and their representing galleries taking part at the 2013 Present Future section.

As a special section of the fair devoted to emerging talents, realised in collaboration with illycaffè, Present Future has grown both in horizons and scale by proposing in 2013 the projects by 24 artists selected by an expanded Curatorial Committee consisting of five young renowned international curators and coordinated – as for the past editions – by Luigi Fassi.

During Artissima, the illy Present Future Prize will be awarded to the artist with the most interesting project by a jury of international museum directors.

Since 2012, the Prize consists in the unique opportunity of an exhibition by the winning artist in the prestigious setting of the Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art on the occasion of the forthcoming edition of Artissima. In November 2013, the museum will host a group exhibition including original and new works by the winners of the 2012 Prize – Naufus Ramirez Figueroa, Vanessa Safavi, and Santo Tolone – curated by last year’s jury members.

Present Future has established itself over the years as a successful launching pad for the latest generation of talented artists.
