DAMA came back to Turin for its second edition, held from November 2nd to 5th in the context of Artissima. The independent art project gathered together a series of emerging art galleries and introduced 2 new spaces entirely dedicated to non profit exhibitions.
Located in the historical building of Palazzo Saluzzo Paesana, DAMA was curated with warm and inclusive spirit in order to break down the physical and conventional walls between artists, and overcome the ordinary art fair’s set up. Every gallery took over a different room with a solo show of a selected artist in deep dialogue with the venue. The synergy between the exhibitors gave visitors new sensations while passing through the different spaces, perceived as part of a single and organic artistic experience. The live program emphasized even more the exchange with the public, featuring a series of performances curated by João Laia under the name of “Smoke and Mirrors” and supported by Compagnia de San Paolo.
