Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea with its research department CRRI and Combo -concept of innovative hospitality and “cultural assemblage” open to experimentation- invites 40 new realities of artistic organization and production to the second edition of Supercondominio, the annual assembly of new spaces for art in Italy. The protagonists will discuss the dynamics and transformations involving the places that currently operate independently in our country.
The first edition of the project collected the testimonies of the spaces involved dwelling on the role they play within the Italian art system. Among the questions raised in the assembly: what are the characteristics of the system in which we operate? What does it mean to act independently within the system? What distinguishes a project space from a gallery? Does it still make sense to make this distinction? What audiences are we addressing?
By posing itself as degree zero for a critical reflection on some of these questions, Supercondominio 2 intends to offer a new opportunity for a meeting to allow us to broaden and deepen some of the discussions triggered.
Supercondomio 2 will be characterized by an expanded form of assembly that, in addition to introducing new spaces, wants to engage with representatives of local and national institutions, as well as researchers, scholars of the topic and collectors, to involve them in a group idea that is not limited to the actors who act daily in this context but depends on a network of connections that is sustained on multiple levels.
As was the case during the first edition, the protagonists of this shared experience, which begins at 2 p.m. on July 6 and ends at 7 p.m. on July 7, will sleep under the stars in tents offered by Combo and set up in the Manica Lunga garden.
Supercondominio takes its name from a type of assembly that regulates the management of a particular building in which two or more buildings, not necessarily constituting autonomous condominiums, share some goods and/or services.
Supercondominio becomes an image for thinking about a model of coexistence based on real relationships and in-depth mutual understanding. Like last year, the most important aspect of the event will be to allow young realities to coexist for two days to talk and foster the creation of new relationships.
Also this year, a marathon (self-)presentation of the spaces involved will be held at the Castle, scheduled for Sunday, July 7, and open to the public. The closed-door assembly, on the other hand, will be held on Saturday, July 6 in the Former Fire Station on Corso Regina Margherita, the future Turin headquarters of Combo that will open its doors in the fall. Dating back to the 19th century and overlooking the Porta Palazzo market, one of the city’s hotspots, the imposing barracks has been completely transformed and is poised to become one of the city’s nerve centers.
Supercondominio’s curatorial coordination is by Caterina Molteni and Laura Lecce.
