“FROM TURIN TO CHICAGO AND VICEVERSA” – 33CONTEMPORARY GALLERY – CHICAGO
On occasion of “Turin 2011: 150 years of the Unity of Italy”, the monthly magazine “Italia Arte. Il meglio della cultura e del Made in Italy” (Italy Art. The best of culture and Made in Italy) intends promoting an artistic-cultural exchange with the 33Collective Gallery, leading art gallery of Chicago, directed by Sergio Gomez, to celebrate not just the one hundred and fifty year anniversary of the Unity of Italy which sees Turin, former capital of the Italian Kingdom, absolute star of the celebrations, but also – conceptually – the strong connection that has always linked our country and our connotations to the United States of America, on a path that for more than 150 years has seen the Italian and American populations deeply bound by art, tradition, history, costume and culture. The choice of Turin as the Italian exhibition headquarters for the project was also dictated by the leading role this Piedmont city plays in contemporary art at home and abroad. This partnership is part of a much bigger plan of relations that “Italia Arte” has with the Italian Culture Institutes all over the world, with Museums and Foundations of the United States and Italy, with numerous contemporary Italian artists and with Italian Associations worldwide.
