Galleria Franco Noero | Piazza Carignano
On March 11, 1999 Franco Noero inaugurated a new contemporary art gallery in Turin, Via Mazzini 39A. On September 18, 2003 the gallery moved to its headquarters in via Giolitti 52A, then moved again in April 2008 to one of the architectural symbols of Turin known as ‘Fetta di Polenta’, built by Alessandro Antonelli and transformed into a space fully dedicated to arts and a lab of ideas for artists.
On May, 2013 The Galleria Franco Noero has changed its location to Via Mottalciata 10/B, on the edge of Barriera district in the north of the city, in an industrial building from of the 20th century with an exhibition area of over 600 square meters. In June 2016 the Franco Noero Gallery opens the second exhibition space in Piazza Carignano, an 18th century apartment located in Palazzo Carignano, in the heart of Turin, with over 500 square meters of exhibition space.
The gallery represents emerging Italian and international artists, exhibiting with particular installations, works created specifically for the exhibition space as video-installations, photography and painting. Alongside the realisation of exhibitions, the Franco Noero Gallery is also engaged in important collaborations with Italian and international museums and institutions. The production of books, catalogs and editions of the represented artists is another of the main objectives of the gallery. The gallery also regularly participates in the most important contemporary art fairs in Italy and abroad.
