Since 2000, the Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT has been building a collection of modern and contemporary art for the benefit of the Piedmont community and its museum network, with acquisitions for GAM – Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Torino and Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea. Over time, its collection has grown into the core of a cultural program, which includes exhibitions, educational activities, specialist training and the participation of the public.

Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, President of the Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT since July 2023, presented the program for the Foundation for the 2024–2027 mandate at a press conference at OGR Torino.

“Twenty-four years ago the Foundation developed and applied a unique model, starting a positive exchange between the private and public sectors” – said Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, President of the Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT – “I intend to further pursue this approach: committing to this model and extending it with many new projects, to match the ambitions of the city and the region. Contemporary art is a crossroads connecting several cultural arenas, forming a cross-disciplinary weft”.

For twenty-four years, the Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT, the non-profit, art-oriented body of the Fondazione CRT, has promoted the role and development of art and culture in contemporary society, acquiring works by Italian and international artists, financing and organizing exhibitions and conferences, investing in education and specialist training. These are the milestones of the journey started in 2000 that has seen the implementation of ideas and projects aimed at appreciating talents, strengthening and developing the region’s contemporary art system in dialogue with the local authorities and institutions.

The 2024-2027 program of the Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT will develop along six pathways, each one identified by a key word: Collection, the focus of the Foundation’s institutional identity and its holdings; Internationalization, one of the strategies of the new programme, opening up to international exhibition circuits and events abroad; Professions in modern and contemporary art, with a new training and education programme; Public Space, the favoured space to develop artworks involving residents, local authorities and associations; Education, the Foundation’s means to attract visitors of all ages to modern and contemporary art; and last but not least, Community, which reflects all the Foundation’s projects to create diverse community building including: professionals, students, citizens, and children of all ages and socio-economic backgrounds.

    In the 1980s, a mere 234 warehouses dotted the landscape of the Inland Empire. Today, over 4,000 logistic centers have been implanted across the region in a rapid movement to bring commerce to the region. Once identified by its untouched land, the area has become enveloped by the sprawling network of warehouses that define the region’s skyline. As this part of Southern California quickly becomes the backbone of America’s road-based supply chain, it simultaneously introduces many repercussions to the daily lives of communities that call the Inland Empire home.

    Area Books

    Nhu Xuan Hua delved into the power of memories in a piece of work titled Tropism, Consequences of a Displaced Memory. The work gives a face to those tropisms that describe spontaneous and automatic reactions initiated by vivid emotions in response to primarily needs or past events in life. Based on archival pictures from her family, the digital intervention interprets these memories through a new angle, exploring the effect of dissipation generated by time passing and driven by the forces of an inherited memory.

    The inaugural exhibition of the Sapieha Palace seeks to unfold the spirit and history of the palace itself, as well as the diverse narratives surrounding its past. The works on displays and their arrangement act as a soft, transparent layer placed over the palace spaces, having been painted and repainted multiple times. The spatial and conceptual interaction thus reveals the previous and ongoing influence of a multitude of forces. (more…)
