The Others was founded twelve years ago as a revolutionary project, in order to offer to the most innovative artistic expressions the opportunity to participate in a fair with the same facilities of the great international events, but with costs of access among the lowest in the world. It was born to give voice to emerging art, addressing young galleries, artist-run and project spaces, artist and curator collectives, independent and non-profit spaces. The realities involved present exhibition projects by artists under 40 or artists over 40 in dialogue with younger artists, to privilege the generational interchange of the most varied artistic productions.
Nomadic by nature, The Others has been hosted in unconventional venues since its inception. Over the years, it has moved to different structures, revitalizing and reconverting important disused buildings and with them the economy of entire neighborhoods, which have drawn inspiration from The Others’ presence to involve the inhabitants in effective and lasting urban reconversion projects.
The Others 2023 is located for the third year in Pavilion 3 of Torino Esposizioni, the former exhibition complex of the City built by Ettore Sottsass senior in 1938. Pavilion 3, designed by Pier Luigi Nervi in 1950, is located in Via Petrarca 39/B, in San Salvario district, inside the historic Parco del Valentino. The twelfth edition of The Others will take place from 2 to 5 November 2023.
