The first and only Italian event built up as both a fair and a festival entirely dedicated to the art of photography.

PHOTOCONTAINER will be held from November 19th to December 20th in the evocative MRF space. Former heartbeat of Turin car economy, since 2005 it has been the key player in a redevelopment project that will lead to an evolution of the Mirafiori district, in order to establish itself as a new cultural center in a city that is increasingly emerging in the international contemporary art scene.

TNE (Torino Nuova Economia), a public company consisting of the City of Turin, theMetropolitan City of Turin, the Piedmont Region and FCA (FIAT Chrysler Automobiles), has found in Photissima an ideal partner to give new impulse to its mission of redevelopment and reuse of abandoned areas of FIAT SpA. This new edition presents itself in a totally updated guise: each exhibitor will set up his/her artworks in acontainer, in order to preserve the original spirit of the place.

The event, organized as a photography fair and festival, will involve Italian and international gallerists and photographers that will reveal the new horizons of what is now to be considered art in all respects.

Venice 2015

The birthplace of the Biennial of Art and Architecture, known to be one of the five most important event in the world dedicated to contemporary art. For the 2015 edition, Photissima has already reserved 2000 sqm in the city centre, flanking the Biennial with its photography exhibition.

Milan 2015
The city worldwide famous for fashion and contemporary art this year will become even more the center of everything with the Universal Exposition (EXPO Milan 2015). In these months Milan will be a melting pot where different cultures and ideas are going to meet and blend. There is not a better environment for an art like photography to show itself, grow, evolve and confront.
