the project

The Others 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.

how to apply

The admission is reserved to commercial galleries, established after 1 January 2009. In addition: artists’ collectives and artists-run-spaces, non-profit centers, associations, foundations, art prizes, art residences, art schools and academies, art libraries, spaces dedicated to young and self-produced design objects, art graphics and editions are allowed to submit their admission request (independently by their opening data) if they present a program continuously dedicated to emerging artists.

Exhibitors must submit a project proposal for their own space.
It is required an exhibition project that may present up to three artists, including a title and a pertinent text. These proposals will represent the basis of selection; selected exhibitors will then discuss it with the Committee / Artistic Management.
The documentation must be submitted by email to the address theothers@theothersfair.com.

The Others 2014 proposes three new sections: OtherScreen, OtherStage and OtherSound. The first two sections are devoted to video art and to performances while the third is reserved for musical research; these sections will be organised according to a timetable and a programme of screenings, live events, artistic and musical performances that will take place during the four days of The Others.

The galleries that will join The Others are free to propose, at no additional cost, one or more works of their artists for each section. Any proposal that arrives by September 15th 2014 will be considered by the Scientific Committee (Olga Gambari, Roberta Pagani, Stefano Riba), which will select the most interesting projects on the basis of the highest research and experimentation profile, the quality of the cultural proposal and of technical and practical feasibility.

OtherScreen is a screening room devoted to vision, a small temporary cinema, where every day videos will alternate with films (each proposed video must be accompanied by a technical file; the maximum length is 20′).
OtherStage will turn the exedra, overlooked by the exhibition halls, into a non-stop theatre, setting in the peculiar architecture of this space an ideal stage for performances, actions and talks.
The presented performances will provide a lively event, easy to set-up, to allow any action to start up and live in an unexpected way, in dialogue with the space and with the bystanders. At the end of each scheduled performance there will be a short interval (about 10′ before the beginning of the next one) to allow the installation and dismantling (for each performance project a technical file and precise indications about the needed materials, the type of action, the timing and the number of actors involved are required. Any possible ‘special’ set-up must be discussed and agreed with the management) . OtherSound is the special section devoted to music research projects, a crossover between art and sound experimentation; it’s a window that will daily present works and experiences that explore the blend of languages and underground musical genres and the hidden potentials of new sound paths.
Any proposals by the exhibitors will be discussed and included in the OtherSound programme.
