In collaboaration with the Educational Department - Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation of Turin

Despite their sometimes hostile and hard to decipher appearance, works of contemporary art are formidable devices for understanding and interpreting the present, acting as a magnifying glass on the reality we live in, and which artists interpret in critical and creative ways. Reading a work of art can therefore become an opportunity to address the fundamental issues of both artistic practice and today's society, a way to reflect on the phenomena that characterize the world in which we live, allowing for the development of a critical conscience, and a new way of looking at the present.

During the meeting, tools for reading contemporary works of art will be discussed and used, using works by important contemporary artists and the strategies used by the Educational Department as a foundation to bring them closer to all audiences.
