Greater Torino is an exhibition series that was set up to highlight and promote local creativity and the activity of artists who were either born and raised in Turin or those who have chosen to become citizens of this city, which has increasingly become a platform for young artists in recent years. Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo has paid particular attention to young Italian artists by dedicating part of its annual exhibitions programme to emerging Italian art since it was first set up. The aim with Greater Torino is to offer local talent a professional, museum structure in which to create their own show as well as setting them the challenge of measuring up to professional curators, exhibition spaces and a wider public. The second edition in the Greater Torino exhibition series will present the work of two local artists, Ludovica Carbotta (b.1982 Turin) and Manuele Cerutti (b.1976 Turin), both of whom studied at the Accademia Albertina di Belle Arti di Torino and who are already heavily involved in the local arts scene, both are active members of the Diogene collective (an annual involving international artists, as well as having worked on various art projects and featuring in exhibitions abroad themselves. Carbotta and Cerutti use different means of artistic expression to question the relationship between a work of art and its spectator: Carbotta's sculptures and installations are spontaneously influenced and shaped by the urban and metropolitan landscape, revealing half-hidden images or producing echoes that reflect their complex structure; Cerutti's paintings reveal the presence of an indecipherable enigma within a composition of pictorial layers and reoccurring symbols acting as dispositive narratives, which analyse and draw the subject to the centre of the work.
