Platform for research & production
based in Turin since 2008
Established in Turin in 2008 by Elisa Troiano, Renato Leotta and Alexandro Tripodi, CRIPTA747 is a non-profit organization dedicated to the research in the contemporary art field.
CRIPTA747 working at the intersection between national and international practices and debates, offers a programme with open-ended and process-based residencies, talks and lectures, artists’ projects, screenings, live art performances, publications and off-site events. CRIPTA747 houses the various aspects of contemporary art practice addressing the need of artists to make new work in a context that encourages dialogue and the exchange of ideas between visual art and other expressive languages. Over the Year, exhibitions feature emerging and international artists showing for the first time in Turin, significant historic figures who have inspired contemporary practice, and artist selected group shows relevant to current debate have contributed to think a new way to tell the evolution of contemporary realities. This cultural policy makes CRIPTA747 an open platform of exchange that fosters collaboration with small-scale similar projects and organizations to support artistic and discursive methodologies of production, mobility and the creation of an active network.

Skinship by Viktorija Rybakova.Workshop and Talk
Workshop, Saturday 16 Nov h 17:00 / 19:00Via Mottalciata 7, Torino @Vertigimn
Talk, Sunday 17 Nov h 16:00Via Giulia di Barolo 18/D, Torino @Quartz Studio
We are pleased to present SKINSHIP by Viktorija Rybakova (Vilnius,1989), the last episode of her residency at CRIPTA747.
Over the past few years, Viktorija Rybakova has been researching human eroticism and the idea of the body as a sensitive fabric. In residence at CRIPTA747, she focussed on the theme of desire: the desire to touch and to be closer to the subjects of our fantasies. Skinship will develop in two moments: a workshop and a talk.
+ 100,00 EUR by Carlos Valverde
13.12.2017 - 23.12.2017opening 12.12.2017 h. 18:00
CRIPTA747 is thrilled to present + 100,00 EUR a work by Carlos Valverde in collaboration with LPCA - Laboratorio Permanente sulla Città e l’Abitare, an interdisciplinary group of research of which CRIPTA747 is part together with Associazione Variante Bunker and some researchers in Architecture and Urban Studies of Polytechnic University of Turin and IUAV, Venice.
+ 100,00 EUR comes from a consideration of the artist's concept of sculpture. What is sculpture today? What is the meaning of sculpture? Trying to figure out a new way of understanding and relating to space and sculpture, Valverde extends the field of spatial and relational exploration of the artwork, opening up his project from the institutional space to a neighborhood of Turin, Barriera di Milano.+ 100,00 EUR gives the opportunity to experience the urban environment and consider its places through sculpture. The project aims to increase the diversity of audiences to interact with it by inviting people to share common spaces of their everyday life and to see them from a different perspective.The project starts with a spoiler: "There are 100 EUR. The first one who finds them, takes them", it's up to the public to decide to whether to follow the clues left by the artist or not, in order to get the final reward.

CRIPTA747's Residency presents Diogo Evangelista and Viktorija Rybakova
01.11.2017 - 05.11.2017opening 31.10.2017 h. 18:30
Cripta747 is pleased to present the works of Diogo Evangelista and Viktorija Rybakova developing during their stay in residence over the past two months.
Through the research developed at Cripta747, Diogo Evangelista explores his interest in the observation of the unspectacular. He has realised a series of objects with geometrical bodies, made of pure asphalt, make ecological issues, Eastern philosophy, archeology, and science fiction come to mind.Viktorija Rybakova focussed on the theme of desire. The basis of capital markets and established material values largely depend on the economy of desire. Therefore we create the whole world of meanings and language to come closer to the horizon of our fantasy, the subject or affect we desire for.
Congrats to Diogo Evangelista and Viktorija Rybakova, fellows of the first edition of CRIPTA747 Residency Programme
