Fondazione Arte CRT: The Program
Fondazione per l'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT
Turin, Italy

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.

  • Patrick Pound: Windows

    In Windows, Pound’s first photobook with Perimeter Editions, we find a cross-section of images lifted from a single category in Pound’s vast collection of 70,000 photographs. Each of the ‘found’ photographs in this new book features a window seen from the outside. We are allowed to look through them, from the privacy of our own homes. We see ghostly figures and happy families; we see actors acting, and everyday folks acting up; we see real and imagined worlds. (more…)

  • Patrick Weldé: Freiheit
    Goswell Road

    On the occasion of our exhibition with Weldé at CFAlive Milan L’AMOUR TOUJOURS, we publish a new edition of the previously sold-out book that we produced with Weldé in 2017, FREIHEIT. All of the photographs in FREIHEIT were taken by Weldé on disposable cameras between 2011-2015. They show a tender side to the artist and his friend circle, and the purest form of trust. (more…)

  • Zhanna Kadyrova: Border Memory
    Feb 17 – May 5, 2024
    Uppsala Art Museum
    Uppsala, Sweden

    Ukrainian artist Zhanna Kadyrova lets urban materials such as asphalt, concrete and tiles bear witness to history’s many layers of rearrangements, visions and shattered dreams. The artist works in a post-minimalist tradition, and the spatial installations refer both to utopian movements and to how abstraction in art is linked to the modern project. Since Russia’s full-scale invasion in 2022, Kadyrova’s art has focused entirely on psychological and sociological aspects of the war. (more…)
