the project

The Others is an international exhibition project dedicated to the emerging contemporary art, now in its fifth 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 5.00 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 Others 2015 is staygold

Stay pure, true, loyal to yourself and your ideals, whole in body, balanced in spirit, always moving, sensitive to what is happening around you. To be free, eccentric, dynamic, subversive towards uni-formity and stereotypes. To be comfortable with yourself, with others, with the world. There is a way to say all of this, an expression that is a mood, a project, a choice. staygold is the suggestion of The Others 2015, to share with all those who will be included.

The Others is promoted by Associazione The Others and organized by Ventundodici Srl.

Exhibitors must submit a curatorial project that is inspired in a free and personal to the suggestion of The Others 2015 stay gold.layout exhibition space | set-up photo – 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 Artistic Director (Olga Gambari, in collaboration with Roberta Pagani) and the Curatorial Board (Stefano Riba, Liv Vaisberg and Pietro Gaglianò).
The documentation must be submitted by email to the address The Others 2015 proposes, as in the previous edition, the three sections: OtherScreen, OtherStage and OtherSound (photos).
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 2015 are free to propose, at no additional cost, one or more works of their artists for each section. Any proposal that arrives by September 4th 2015 will be considered by the Artistic Director (Olga Gambari, in collaboration with Roberta Pagani) and the Curatorial Board (Stefano Riba, Liv Vaisberg and Pietro Gaglianò), 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.
OtherScreenlayout – 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′).
OtherStagelayout – 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).
OtherSoundlayout – 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.
