From 2 May to 2 June 2024, the regional capital city of Piedmont will host the first edition of EXPOSED Torino Foto Festival, Turin’s new international festival of photography. The 2024 Festival focuses on New Landscapes – Nuovi Paesaggi, echoing one of the main topics of Italy’s tradition in photography, offering a reflection of the modern evolution of the medium, of the main challenges and innovations of the world of images in its programme of temporary exhibitions, meetings, talks, and events in Turin’s main cultural institutions.

EXPOSED is promoted by the City of Turin, the Piedmont Region, the Turin Chamber of Commerce, Intesa Sanpaolo, Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo and Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT on behalf of Fondazione CRT and is organised by Fondazione per la Cultura Torino: an event to highlight once again the city’s cultural and artistic vocation, that views creativity and innovation projects as one of the main drivers of the development and growth of the area, and not just as a tourist attraction.

Menno Liauw and Salvatore Vitale, Director and Artistic Director of FUTURES, an international platform with 19 major European art institutions with an impact and influence in the world of photography, were selected as EXPOSED Art Directors through an international public process.

The programme of the first edition of EXPOSED lists over 20 temporary exhibitions, an artistic commission, two days of talks, an educational platform, a fair of independent publishers, meetings, screenings, portfolio readings and other events, enabled by the involvement in planning and production of the city’s main institutions, the independent organizations and the players of the city’s and international artistic landscape.
