Event 2016

Paratissima 12, 2-6 November 2016, Torino Esposizioni


The twelfth edition of Paratissima will take place at Torino Esposizioni from the 2nd till the 6th of November 2016.

More than 500 artists took part in last year’s edition, attracting 47.578 visitors in 5 days.

Paratissima was originally intended as spin-off event of the international contemporary art fair Artissima, but in a few years time it has become one of the most important events in the national art scene.

The artists taking part in Paratissima are emerging creatives such as painters, sculptors, photographers, illustrators, fashion and industrial designers and film directors that still aren’t part of the official artistic circuit. The event is also open to those established artists who are willing to get involved in a dynamic environment aimed at a vast audience.

Paratissima is subdivided into sections dedicated to design, fashion, photography, street artists and emerging contemporary art galleriesEducational areas and workshops are key elements that ensure an active participation and a connection between the public and the young artists during the five-day-long event.

Paratissima also organises a series of events, as well as various collaborations with other companies or associations, special projects that are considered important for their high quality level and collaborations with exhibitions hosting internationaly renowned artists.

For the twelfth edition of the event we want to take you in a special journey of discovery.
