FRAC – some background

In 2007, the FRAC Piedmont institution followed the trail of regional Funds for contemporary art which were previously created in France to rule the State intervention on contemporary art and to foster the democratisation process of the visual arts. It is a unique and innovative choice that places the Piedmont Region in the van garde of Italian cultural policies that support contemporary art.
The Fund allows the purchase of works by international young artists’ who have been selected to take part in Artissima, the international fair of contemporary art in Turin. The artworks are chosen by a committee of three international curators.
The collection primarily has educational and cultural purposes. It is aimed to make the public, and in particular the younger generations, aware of the new trends and recent research of the visual arts through several exhibitions and a full program of educational activities, carried out to make artists’ work and the dynamics of the world of art accessible.
The collection consists of 38 work by 34 artists.
