EXPOSED. Torino Foto Festival
May 2 – Jun 2, 2024
Various Locations
Turin, Italy

Exposed is Turin’s new international festival of photography, which every year will bring temporary exhibitions, a specialised fair, educational activities, meetings, artistic commissions and off-site events centered around a theme to the Piedmontese capital in May. Promoted by the City of Turin, the Piedmont Region, the Turin Chamber of Commerce, Intesa Sanpaolo, Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo and Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT on behalf of Fondazione CRT and organised by Fondazione per la Cultura Torino, Exposed was created to strengthen the deep bond between Turin and photography.

The goal is to provoke contemplation regarding the transitional state of photography. Starting from a historical perspective, Exposed seeks to present various approaches, perspectives, narratives, and intersections that showcase the diverse forms the medium takes on. Simultaneously, it aims to inspire, evoke emotions, entertain, and propose new ways of interacting with, interpreting, and appreciating the work of both classic and contemporary artists.

Exposed envisions itself as a cutting-edge presence in the international photography panorama, complementing the existing offerings. Therefore, the festival’s artistic direction is focused on an inclusive approach to attract diverse audiences – both local and international – through a diverse program that encompasses different approaches to photography: from classic to contemporary, cross-media, installative and performative.

Collaboration and collectivity are key aspects highlighted by the artistic direction, emphasizing the multidisciplinary and kaleidoscopic nature of Exposed. Diverse visions, approaches, ideas, and projects make the festival – and consequently, the city of Turin – an inclusive meeting point open to the world.

  • How we remember tomorrow
    Feb 13 – Jun 15, 2024
    University of Queensland Art Museum
    Brisbane, Australia

    How we remember tomorrow celebrates storytelling across generations, through oceans and waterways and transcending eras and perspectives. Featured artists understand the watery spaces of our planet as ancestral archives: sources of knowledge that carry stories and cultural practices. Alongside their kin, they honour intergenerational narratives that are disseminated along ocean currents despite ongoing colonial legacies of forced displacement, homeland dispossession, indenture and the loss or dormancy of vital cultural practices.
