Fondazione Arte CRT
Fondazione Per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea

The Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT has been established in 2000 by the Fondazione CRT, with the aim of enhancing and valorising the cultural and artistic heritage of Turin and Piedmont. The approaches of the Foundation are the acquisition of new works of art, available to the public and the prominent cultural institutions in the area, and the implementation of projects for the development, strengthening and efficiency, of the entire system. In partnership with the OGR – Officine Grandi Riparazioni, the Foundation also puts in place various actions to bring contemporary art closer to an increasingly vast and widespread audience.

The Foundation focuses its activities and resources almost exclusively on the enrichment of its Collection the purchase of works (with an overall investment of more than 40 million Euro), then loaned to the GAM – Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Torino and Castello di Rivoli – Museo d’Arte Contemporanea. In this way, it provided the two museums with the opportunity to create a single major collection, completing their existing ones. It also led the city of Turin to interface and to compete with the leading Italian and foreign institutions in the field.

  • Patrick Pound: Windows
    Publication
    Perimeter
    International
    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…)

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…)
