artissima is an art fair,
and as such it is a trade
event. But also, the short
duration of the event, just
three days, lends itself to
a particularly risky form
of cultural experimentation: one that echoes the
innovative proposals by
participating galleries who
represent emerging artists.
The cultural element of
artissima acts not so much
to justify or lend credibility
to its commercial side, but,
rather, to fully inhabit the
ambiguity of the fair and
exploit its potential. The
aim of artissima’s curatorial programme is to offer
a space in which current
cross-fertilisation between
art forms can be put to the
test. It provides a context
for playing around with
new strategies of production, display and reception,
and for the public to
consider the success and reliability of these strategies.
The programme borrows
its title directly from Pier
Paolo Pasolini’s Poesia in
forma di rosa (Poetry in the
Shape of a Rose), the book
that marked his return to
poetry following the success
of his early films. In the
same publication, Pasolini
also experimented with
graphic design by using
concrete poetry to arrange
his verse.
Just as the interchange
between various disciplines is the theme of the
curatorial programme, so
the interaction between
different periods is explored
through the juxtaposition of
works from various times.
Amid the contributions of
emerging artists in the main
section and new entries
section, a temporal leap
will bring forth the works
in the back to the future
section, which is devoted to
art from the 1960s and 70s.
Both the trade event and
the curatorial programme
have as their focus the
theme of advanced
experimentalism which,
by its nature, incorporates
the possibility of making
mistakes as a condition
for inventing new ways of
creating meaning.

BACK TO THE
FUTURE
Nanni Balestrini, untitled. Courtesy of Giacomo Guidi & MG, Roma
In the theory of parallel
universes, the simultaneity of events far apart in
time is possible. Yet, when
viewed in linear time the
same events are in fact a
great distance apart on the
space–time continuum.
The back to the future
section presents a time
shift creating a simultaneity of works and practices
that are temporally very
remote from one another.
In this sense, artissima

offers to its visitors not
only a group of modern
art pieces, but also an
experiment in which the
present-day relevance of
these works is defined.
The appointment of the
Selection Committee
of curators—consisting
of Massimiliano Gioni,
Christine Macel and
Jessica Morgan—is based
on the expertise of its
members in recognising
the contemporary, even
in the past. artissima
has entrusted them with
selecting works that, even
though made in the past,
nevertheless, resonate with
the interests and obsessions of emerging artists
today. To heighten the
effect of this shift in time,
the exhibitions in the back
to the future section will
be located in an area of the
fair that also includes two
bookshops with historical
material from the same
period, 1960-79.
PRESENT FUTURE
Somewhere between a
group exhibition, a series
of unprecedented solo
displays and a memorandum, present future
2010 will feature a group
of artists from different
countries, selected by Mai
Abu ElDahab, Richard
Birkett, Thomas Boutoux
and Luigi Fassi.
The culmination of
months of exchange between artists and curators,
present future includes a
number of works created
especially for the fair, as
well as projects shown in
Europe for the first time.

take place, at any venue
in their region, during
November 2010. Each
faculty gives its selection a
title and description, and
transform it into a course.
Thus, each course takes
pre-existing events out of
context and gives them
a new narrative frame.
Anyone can enroll for one
of the five courses for free
at the fair. The organisers will also be present at
the enrollment to teach
potential students to devise their own Pickpocket
Almanacks and to connect
them with the remote
selectors.
Pickpocket Almanack sits
on a spectrum between a
list of recommendations on
one end (which is typically
a casual and unsystematic offering by a friend or
colleague) and a formal
school or university on the
other (with a community of
students, fixed site and apparatus, and defined roles,
protocols and measures).
Pickpocket Almanack is not
a school, not even an experimental one. But it is an
attempt to generate something like a curriculum out
of everyday cultural life,
in specific localities, and
to bring strangers together
to reflect and act on its
content.
Pickpocket Almanack originated in San
Francisco (as a project of SFMOMA)
Typography
by Dexter Sinister
dexter sinister will
demonstrate their Metathe-difference-betweenthe-two-Font, a typeface
derived from MetaFont,
the 30-year-old computer typography system
originally programmed by
Donald Knuth. The font
will be primarily applied
throughout artissima’s
architecture in the form of
vinyl wall signage, while
its backstory will be exhibited as a 3D caption in a
dedicated space within the
fair. MetaFont is, at once,
a programming language
and its own interpreter, a
swift trick in which it both
provides a vocabulary and
decodes its syntax back to
the native binary machine
language of 1s and 0s. This
yields what is essentially
a skeleton of a typeface,
ready for manipulation
by five base parameters:
PEN, WEIGHT, SLANT,
SUPERNESS and
CURLYNESS.
Thinking
Through Cinema
(Deep Red)
Curated by Benjamin Cook and
Mike Sperlinger of LUX, London
raumlaborberlin, house of contamination, 2010
In 1975, film director
Dario Argento shot his
giallo masterpiece Profondo
rosso in Turin. Featuring
David Hemmings and
with a soundtrack by
prog-rock band Goblin,
the film, like all Argento’s
best work, is at once a
gripping horror and a slyly
self-reflexive meditation
artissima n˚17 INTERNATIONAL FAIR OF CONTEMPORARY ART IN TORINO • 5-7 NOVEMBER 2010 • OVAL lingotto fiere
on the dubious pleasures
of voyeurism.
For Thinking Through
Cinema (Deep Red),
Argento’s film becomes
a stand-in for cinema as
a whole; a starting point
from which to explore the
differences between film
(as a physical medium)
and cinema (as the cultural, architectural and
social space in which film
has traditionally been
experienced).
Six commissioned artists
will each present their
‘version’ of Profondo rosso,
using Argento’s film as a
source text but perhaps
without showing a single
frame of the original.
The artists’ projects will
be presented over the
course of the fair as part
of a rolling programme of
timed events, hosted in a
specially constructed space
modelled on a cinema auditorium. Thinking Through
Cinema (Deep Red) offers
an opportunity for artists
to completely re-imagine
cinema – its history, its
limits and its untapped
possibilities – from the
perspective of both creator
and audience. Artists
include Juliette Blightman,
Torsten Lauschmann and
Emily Wardill.
guide the other. Building
on the fair’s concept of
‘contamination’, the
contributions that make
up The Dancers interrupt
and overlap with each
other, as elements of each
successive performance
accumulate on stage over
the duration of the fair.
Including well-known
experimental choreographers such as Xavier Le
Roy and emerging visual
artists such as Ei Arakawa
and Amy Granat, the
series wanders through
performance, sculpture,
film and dance, with each
participant adding new
layers of meaning and
different perspectives
from which to appreciate
the relationship between
dance and art. The Dancers
also features the premiere
of new works by major
artists such as Joachim
Koester, whose film Tarantism (2007, inspired by the
uncontrollable bodily convulsions caused by a spider
bite) has been included in
several dance-related museum exhibitions around
the world.
assembling an index of
tools for improving the
urban environment, with a
specific focus on political
processes. To collect testimonies on this subject,
a mobile unit resembling
an expandable toolbox –
designed by Pedro Reyes
– will be the venue for a
series of live exchanges
of knowledge between
strategic agents, citizens,
politicians and decision
makers. When fully open,
the ugp unit becomes a
fully-functional open-air
TV recording studio in
which interviews can be
conducted and recorded.
This pool of knowledge
will then be organised as
an index that will constitute the ugp archive.
A key component of the
ugp archive will be a series
of in-depth interviews with
current or recent mayors
of cities around the world.
Hand in hand with the
world’s rapid urbanisation
goes an equivalent rise in
the prominence and influence of the figure of the
mayor. The conventional
perception of the mayor

Another principal element of the archive will be
a series of dialogues with
policymakers responsible
for innovation in the urban
sphere: city planners,

regulators, councillors,
members of parliament,
congressmen, senators,
public officers, etc.

In recent years, dancers
have made frequent and
significant appearances in
the context of visual art.
Not since the legendary
Judson Dance Theater
in the early 1960s have
the lines between art and
dance been so blurred,
with young contemporary
artists and choreographers eager to learn from
and collaborate with one
another. Exhibitions in
major art institutions such
as the Museum of Modern
Art, New York, the Walker
Art Center, Minneapolis,
and the Whitney Museum
of American Art, New
York, have placed the
pioneers of postmodern
dance – Trisha Brown,
Anna Halprin, Lucinda
Childs and Yvonne Rainer
– within the established
canon of the history of art,
and a next generation of
choreographers and artists
are finding provocative
new ways to think about
the body moving through
space and time.
At artissima, The
Dancers provides a context
in which contemporary
art shares the stage with
contemporary choreography, allowing each
discipline to inform and
is organised in two distinct
phases: prospecting and
sequencing.
After artissima, the
schematic entries produced during the sequencing phase will form the
elementary particles of the
ugp’s ’urban toolbox’: a
database or catalogue of
strategies and processes
collected all over the world
that can be recombined
and tested in unrelated
urban contexts.
