The Others takes place in Lungo Dora Firenze 87, on the ground floor of the former Hospital Regina Maria Adelaide, in the trendiest urban area of Turin, a 5-minute walk from Piazza Castello. The building, opened in 1887, consists of three wings connected by hallways and overlooking a vast courtyard. Named after Queen Maria Adelaide in 1885, it was a trauma center of excellence and among the first to introduce the re-education and rehabilitation services in the 60's. Closed in April of 2016, it was given to The Others thanks to the availability and sensibility of the City of Health and Science of Turin.
The Others is developing an open and multi-faceted identity. The fair aims at interpreting the contemporary cultural metamorphosis that sees individuals dealing with a deep technological and communicative revolution.
Concepts such as stability and a sedentary lifestyle are nowadays becoming increasingly obsolete, replaced by new cultural parameters: mobility, flexibility, adaptability, dynamism, diversity, cosmopolitanism, cultural contamination and autonomy.
The Others chooses to eradicate itself, relocating over the years ahead in different venues, thus promoting the flow of ideas, of intellectual stimulus, of openness and fluency among cultures. The Others turns Cultural Nomadism into its belief. Through the change of locations the fair uses a pioneering model to interact with the local communities giving rise to a continuous flow of knowledge, consciousness and creative exchanges.
A program comprising Performance, Video, Music and the novelty of a day dedicated to a Roundtable, which this year will explore and discuss the theme of Cultural Nomadism, make the fair a dynamic event, full of moments of discussion and interchange of experiences, ideas, projects and debates, which are fundamental triggers of positive synergies for the growth of the whole contemporary art system.
Vital part of the Turin art week, The Others is a great opportunity for those wishing to explore the emerging contemporary art scene.
The Others Exhibit: the second edition of Exhibit is presented this year inside the Fair, in the main gym of the Maria Adelaide. The exhibition is inspired by a principle that should always be the main one of art: to be boundless. Sculptures, installations and multimedia interventions with no size limits will engage with the vastness of their container, forcing the usual limits of an exhibition space
The Others Performance: a daily program of performances from artists proposed by the exhibitors and selected by the Curatorial Committee.
The Others Screen: inside three small projection rooms, adjacent to each other, videos proposed by the exhibitors and selected by the Curatorial Committee will rotate every day.
The Others Roundtable: The Others will invite some of the major players in the emerging art scene to discuss the topic of Cultural Nomadism.
The Others is promoted by Associazione The Others.
Admission is reserved to profit and no-profit organizations focused on the support and promotion of emerging artists: art galleries, no-profit exhibition spaces, foundations, associations, collectives of artists and curators, and artist-run spaces.
Exhibitors must present a curatorial project including up to three artists, with a title and an exhibition statement. Admissions will be at discretion of the Curatorial Committee.
Exhibitors may submit, at no extra charge, a curatorial proposal for one or more than one section of the special projects: Performace, Screen and Exhibit. The first two are dedicated to performances and videos while the third one refers to the new edition of Exhibit, located in the main gym of the Maria Adelaide. Exhibit is an exhibition of artworks with no size limitations selected by the Curatorial Committee: sculptures, installations and multimedia interventions that can interact with the wide space of the container. The proposal may include works of any medium, as long as they don't require the use of walls or punctual illumination.
