PARI/Polo delle Arti Relazionali e Irregolari di Palazzo Barolo, Housing Giulia e Galleria Gliacrobati.
EXIHIBTION SINGULAR AND PLURAL 2018 – A project of Città di Torino and Opera Barolo.

The exhibition, through the combination of unique sensibilities, mean to build a dialogue between artists of the mainstream and irregular artists (called outsiders), italians and internationals, for a shared reflection on the permeability of the boundaries between the different artistic expressions,between health and illness, between “normality” and “madness”, between one culture and the other, to give value to diversity of which each of us is bearer.
During the first stage of the exhibition, in three locations in Turin, it will be possibile to attend performances, meetings, workshops suitable for all with free participation.
The second stage, in April, at the StudioDieci gallery in Vercelli provides an exhibition in dialogue with local artists and meetings with schools.
Such exchanges have the goal of bringing disability and psychic discomfort out of isolation, focusing attention on the abilities of each singular author, and not defects or pathologies.

Irregular lectures of art history
The silent hands:outsiders in the great works of art 

Monday 11th June from 6:00 pm until 8:00, in collaboration with PARI-Polo delle Arti Relazionali e irregolari, Opera Barolo and Municipality of Turin.

An historical look on the manpower that contributed over the centuries to build the Italian artistic heritage. A lecture to raise awareness on how many anonymous hands that, with sacrifice, knowledge and passion, have accompanied the great masters of art and architecture, from Brunelleschi to Bernini. The result is an overview of characters, but also of entire phases of the production process, that can be defined as outsiders – even though they have played a central role in waving the collective cultural fabric

Visions beteen Sky and Earth

Wednesday 23rd May at 7:30 pmt, the exhibition Visionss between sky and earth: Giorgio Barbero & C – curated by Tea Tarantino and Alessia Panfili will inaugurate at Gliacrobati Art Gallery, with a musical aperitivo. For the occasion, the gallery will host a part of the exhibition, organized at Palazzo Barolo. The event in via Ornato 4 will be dedicated to Giorgio Barbero, in conversation with artists Oby One (Roberto Zaiacometti) and Cosimo Cavallo.

The exhibition, taking place in several different locations at the occasion of the 40 years of the Basaglia law, aims at presenting different points of view on the transformation of psychiatry, researching the connections with contemporary art through a critical analysis of powerful and different artistic visions.

Gliacrobati Art Gallery will present a collection of works on paper by Giorgio Barbero, astral landscapes, metaphors of a travel in art through time and space, in acrobatic dialogue with Cities from the future by Oby One, a perfect assemblage of components of different shapes and materials and the fantastic portraits of Cosimo Cavallo.

Cosimo Cavallo, was born in 1968 in Turin, where he attends the Fine Arts Academy and graduates with a dissertation on the concept of space in Fellini. His art can be defined as direct, instinctive and graphically expressionist.

Oby One, alias of Roberto Zaiacometti, was born in Ivrea in 1948, started drawing in the mid-Seventies, while on break from working at the printing machines. Since 2000 he creates tridimensional works, such as the Cities from the future, which are on view at Gliacrobati Art Gallery.

For the occasion there will be a new proposition of the IX Edition of “13600HZ | Concert for sewing machines / In limine temporis” (on soundtrack), the ninth tableau vivant by Sara Conforti (renewing her collaboration with the Education Department of Castello di Rivoli Contemporary Art Museum, Francesca Cinalli – choreographer and dramaturg – and Paolo De Santis – composer). This new edition, dedicated by the artist to her experience in the community, includes the participation of musicians Stefano Bertoldi and Claudio Demarco.
After “Damnatio Memoriae” that took place on the 8th of March 2017 in Galleria Umberto I in Turin, the artist comes back to the themes of femininity and abuse, this time inspired by the process of artistic research developed with the patients of Fragole Celesti, involved in a musical project, recorded for the first time on a physical device at Officina Sonora in Turin.

L’installazione presentata in galleria si inserisce all’interno del progetto Centosettantaperottanta I Ricicli Emozionali I Generazioni, l’archivio perpetuo e partecipato attraverso il quale Sara Conforti intreccia i confini tra abito e habitus per la creazione di nuovi modelli di comunità.

Al termine della discussione il pubblico sarà coinvolto nell’ overture in performance: la IX Edizione di 136OOHZ I Concerto per macchine per cucire (on soundtrack) il nono tableaux vivent di Sara Conforti (che rinnova le collaborazioni storiche con Francesca Cinalli – Coreografa e drammaturga  Paolo de Santis – Compositore) e che in questa nuova edizione si avvale della preziosa sinergia con i musicisti Stefano Bertoli, Claudio Demarco.

Un nuovo lavoro corale che ha dato vita ad un opera in Limited Edition destinata alla vendita. 50 speciali supporti musicali in serie numerata registrati negli spazi di Officina Sonora di Torino e custoditi all’interno di preziosi taccuini realizzati in collaborazione con le pazienti.

Da conservare con amore.

Il ricavato della vendita andrà a sostenere i nuovi progetti dell’artista all’interno della Comunità Fragole Celesti finalizzati alla ricollocazione sociale e professionale delle ragazze ospiti. In partenza anche crowdfunding sulla piattaforma Produzioni dal Basso a sostegno dell’iniziativa.

The therapy of Art


Wednesday the 28th of February at 6:30 pm, as a conclusion of the exhibition project, Gliacrobati Art Gallery is presenting a conversation between the exhibitions’ curators and Wilma Cipriani, who was already our guest at the occasion of the opening conference “The difference between aesthetic representation and aesthetic experience”.

The therapy of art was a program that took place over five weeks in our spaces, allowing five different art therapists to present, one week each, a selection of works created by their patients that represent their work and interpretation. Starting from a personal approach, the aim is to represent the different methodological dynamics that characterize the work of the art therapist and of the evolution of that intimate relationship with the patient, of which the artwork is only the final moment.

Wilma Cipriani, Roberta Billè, Deborah Bormann, Luigino Bardini, Maria Luisa Camurati and Raffaela Carola Lorio will be present at the event, highlighting the resemblances and differences that have emerged in the following of exhibitions.

This meeting will be the occasion to present a catalogue of texts that have been written by the art therapists to support their exhibition, with two introductory texts by Wilma Cipriani and Marco Petrocchi.

The difference between aesthetic representation and aesthetic experience

Wilma Cipriani, philosopher, psychologist and art therapist, point of reference for many of her colleagues, will be a guest of the gallery on the 24th of January at 18:30 for a conference that will touch different themes that will be the centre of the exhibition “The Therapy of art” which will open in gallery the following day and will see 5 art therapists, one week each, present works of their patients, which are representatives of their work on the field. It was important for us to have Wilma Cipriani giving a more theoretical perspective on what it means to be an art therapist today. The title of the conference will be “The difference between aesthetic representation and aesthetic experience” and it will revolve around how, after the modern discoveries of neuroscience, art therapy can be considered a sort of physiotherapy.
