OGR Torino

1 week ago

OGR, a brand-new 20,000 square meter Innovation Hub + Arts Center will be opening in Turin on September 30th, 2017. OGR is a project aimed at regenerating and reopening Turin’s Officine Grandi Riparazioni, a site built between 1885 and 1895 once dedicated to the maintenance of railway vehicles and now committed to the promotion of culture and technological innovation in the fields of visual and performing arts. The main building covers an area of 20,000 square-meters and consists of two long wings, almost 200 meters long, which are connected transversely by a third much lower structure, creating its characteristic “H” shape. In 2013, the OGR-CRT consortium (of which Turin’s Fondazione CRT holds a controlling stake) purchased the land from RFI Sistemi Urbani with the aim of restoring and giving it back to the city as a versatile, inclusive and accessible space.

FuturDome

2 months ago

The project by the International Institute of Futurist Studies (ISISUF) is an experimental space to present art within a beautifully renovated Milanese Liberty palace and thereby engages the building’s residents in direct contact with art and creativity.

The liberty style building located close to the shopping streets of Corso Buenos Aires, does not only house interchangeable temporary residence spaces, meeting rooms and customizable ateliers. The building as well accommodates exhibition spaces to present different artistic projects. The aim is to create a unique environment, to experience art in an unexplored way, in the revolutionary tradition of the original futurist spirit. The fluidity of spaces allows artists and creatives to install micro-worlds of high aesthetic and sensorial impact within the rooms.

Further, the building houses a public art gallery which functions as a temporary exhibition space for presenting new products from the sustainers of the ISISUF. It is a new concept, overlapping domestic units with public art projects, to create a multi-purpose space for residents, artists and their guests.

The ISISUF is an international organization that is focused on futurist movements and anticipates and follows the micro-movements of contemporary art. Its main activities include the promotion of modern and contemporary art projects, documentation, collection and conservation of art works, supporting publications and nourishing its own library and archives of futurist works and volumes on architecture, avant-garde poetry, sculpture and art criticism.

Converso

2 months ago

The program of Converso displays peculiar contemporary art projects of artists of different ages, places, and creative languages, who have to interact with the architecture, symbolic and historical features of the former church.

Embraced by the church’s frescos, a work of Giulio and Antonio Campi, depicting the conversion, baptism, miracles and martyrdom of Paul the Apostle, the contemporary art work is displayed in the middle of the room.

The artists are been given a stage, which is merely a flat surface with no walls, seemingly floating in the surroundings of this historical building. Converso provides a platform for contemporary dialog, within halls that have been a witnesses of time – being erected between 1549 and 1619, deconsecrated in 1808, after a decree issued by Napoleon, used as a storage space until 1932, before it was renovated and became a concert hall and later in the 60s a recording studio for, among others, Maria Callas.


Converso is directed by Alexander May, and programmed by him and Michele D’Aurizio.
