The ex­hi­bi­tion LUD­WIG GOES POP of­fers an op­por­tu­ni­ty to ex­plore this pheno­menon and to com­pre­hend Pop Art as an ex­pres­sion of a mod­ern at­ti­tude to­ward life. In the 1960s the “ev­ery­day” had ar­rived—it had made its way in­to art: in all man­n­er of play, from hu­mor­ous­ly iron­ic to bit­ing and crit­i­cal, artists ex­plored the Zeit­geist in their art, in­te­grat­ed frag­ments and quotes from the world of con­sumerism and ad­ver­tis­ing, comics, sci­ence, tech­nol­o­gy, erot­ic, and mass me­dia.

The show takes place within a eighteenth century architectural gem: Palazzo Cavour. Artissima has invited a “retired” artist with an inquisitive mind and a talent for discovery and display to act as the ‘non-curator’ for One Torino, namely Maurizio Cattelan. He chose to work in a team with Palais de Tokyo’s Myriam Ben Salah and independent curator Marta Papini.

In such relationships and gaps, the erosion of memory and the corruption of information are exposed, thus confronting the visitor with the wearing down of meanings as well as the destabilisation of feelings.

Only gradually does the eye find its bearings and the images' contours emerge from the black, gray and green tones of the small-format paintings of Victor Man. This gradual process of recognition transforms the images into a threshold, a place of transition into another, inner reality. The space that opens up under cover of darkness within Victor Man's works leads viewers into a mysterious world that merges the mundane and fantastic, myth and fetish, individual experience and arthistorical references, the male and the female, man and beast.

Bernsteinzimmer (2010) by the Romanian-born Hungarian artist István Csákány is a detailed and complex reconstruction, completely in wood, of a private atelier. The effect of artistic alienation brought about by the completely wooden construction gives the untidy cellar room, which seems to have been just recently abandoned, something of the effect of a metaphorical mise en abyme, a figurative repetition: an interior reflecting the everyday, ordered chaos of a man who takes refuge in his tinkering and who has portrayed his own prosaic reality at life size.

Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) is one of the most renowned artists from the mid-twentieth century. Throughout her prolific career, Saint Phalle created a complex body of work in various media which was deeply embedded with socio-political issues. With themes ranging from joyful to profound to intellectual, the paradoxal nature of her work has yet to be fully explored. She was one of the first women to receive international acclaim and recognition during her lifetime, as well as successfully create a public persona. Similar to Warhol, Saint Phalle was able to use the media to skillfully guide the reception of her work.

Fed by various sources including Caretos Portuguese rituals, sky charts and trips made ​​in parts of the world such as India and the Sahara, the drawings of the Portuguese artist Rui Moreira combine geometric and abstract decorative motifs with figures evoking mythical figures and deities. They are “inner landscapes” in which the repetition of simple gestures and “internal and external movements and rhythms” lends the work a physical dimension.

Rhythm 0, 1974 is one of Marina Abramovic’s earliest and most challenging works, in which she examines the relationship between performer and audience. Abramovic, in a passive role, let viewers act on her body in any way they chose, using 72 objects placed on a table, including a feather, scalpel, whip and pistol: some give pleasure, others might inflict pain. Initially gentle, the audience gradually became aggressive. The installation reconstructs the table and parts of the original performance.

Aiming to encourage a plurality of viewpoints on contemporary production, Mudam constantly rejigs the presentation of the artworks in its collection with new themes and concepts. A gallery of the museum will thus be devoted to an exhibition devised by the Mudam communication department, taking the (old or young) visitor's relationship with the art as a starting point. Conceived as a fun route through a selection of pieces from the collection, the exhibition emphasizes the viewer and his or her role in the museum and, at the same time, attempts to challenge some clichés about contemporary art and those who view it.

Once again it proposes an international event that includes – as is the Museum’s tradition – something that goes beyond a mere collaboration with a prestigious artist to become a veritable challenge, a confrontation on the artist’s part with a venue full of history, to be related with his/her own past and stories, with personal experiences that are themes in works and research. This is the case for the important exhibition the Castello dedicates to the famous French artist Sophie Calle, an unchallenged protagonist on the world art scene, who will present a totally site-specific project for the monumental halls on the second floor of the Sabauda Residence.

Nirvana is the first comprehensive exploration of the influence of erotica in design, fashion and contemporary art. By turns cheeky, luxurious and mysterious, the exhibition presents the work of around one hundred contemporary creators who make use of an iconography connected with sensual pleasure, drawing inspiration from erotic and fetishist literature, and from the images, objects and garments to which they frequently refer.

Visitors will discover objects of superior workmanship, many of them rare and inaccessible, made from materials associated with the world of luxury goods and craftsmanship. The exhibition forces us to re-examine our own ideas and perceptions of pleasure, and shows how forms can be transmuted from the private to the public sphere. Three major creators are given carte blanche within the exhibition: Mark Woods (designer), Betony Vernon (jewellery designer) and Nika Zupanc (designer).
