is an international exhibition project dedicated to the emerging contemporary art, now in its fourth edition. The protagonists of The Others
are all the operators – no matter if profit or no-profit – which deal on a continuous basis with programs dedicated to young artists: galleries
born after January 1st 2009
and – irrespectively on their opening date – no-profit centers, associations and foundations, artists or curators collectives, artist-run-spaces, publishing projects, art awards, residences for artists, art schools and academies, bookshops which deal with art, spaces dedicated to young, self-produced design and artist graphics
which meet at The Others
to develop a focus on the global community of emerging art. A unique exhibition platform, implemented to gather the multiplicity of the realities which operate for the promotion of the younger artists and contexts showing a wide variety of objectives, programs and means of expression. Few initiatives exist for their collective promotion, and yet all subjects do share the spirit of researching and valorizing the emerging creative energies. A great opportunity for visibility and – at the same time – an essential place to gather and exchange experiences, contacts and projects; elements which constitute the very basis for the development of professional networks and activate virtuous synergies, as it is essential for the growth of the whole contemporary art system. Devised for young exhibitors in terms of quality and access, The Others
is therefore a privileged observatory on the emerging international creativity, a place for a welcoming, experimental and non-conventional cultural proposal. A mesmerizing venue – i.e. the former jail of Le Nuove
– and the late opening time – from 6.00 p.m. to 01.00 a.m. – completes a formula which has proven to be successful as a new art promotion format and which – at the same time – offers the audience the renewed pleasure of discovering the newest voices and most bursting energies of the artistic panorama. Provided with a performing area
set up in the enthralling theater of the former prison – which shall host meetings, presentations, readings, theater and music performances, video projections, live music and dj set – as well as with bars and restoration points arranged in the former laboratories which face the central garden, Le Nuove
represent a gathering and meeting place of tremendous appeal for all the artlovers and the youngest audience; the very beating heart of Turin’s contemporary art. The fair for the second year bets on the care and quality research of the whole project
; the artistic management
– director Olga Gambari
and a scientific committee formed by Roberta Pagani
and Stefano Riba
– shall be aimed at attaining the best possible shared result.
The Wild Side
To be the wild side, the free one, the one that’s difficult to define and categorize; the side of art and experimentation which is unpredictable and in metamorphosis. An unceasing open research, to find out that the reflected image and the shadow show much more than what you expected. Beyond definitions and genres, art that interests us is the one that grows on the wild and yet undefined side, the side of The Others: unexplored ideas that grow independently – sprouted in unimaginable places, out of the usual fields and spaces – that offer themselves on an unique condition: the free observation. The Others – The Wild Side will be back in November with its dynamic identity living on exhibitions, concerts, performances and on the thoughts of all those who inhabit it and change, remember, dream, plan, experience with us. And turn into The Others. Since one never knows what happens, we can only prepare to welcome it. This year too, The Others can rely on a wide selection of awards for the artists and for the best curatorial projects, as well as on the support from new partners, along with those that accompany the project since its inception. Among them: Format, Gondrand, Poster Heros, Rolling Stone, Tuborg.
The Others is promoted by Associazione The Others and organized by Ventundodici Srl.
