Gran Torino: Italian Contemporary Art, which is immediately recognizable by North American associations with the car produced in the 1970's or the Hollywood film of the same name.

Torino (Turin) refers to one of Italy's most vibrant cities and one of the most dynamic centers of contemporary art in Europe. GRAN TORINO: Italian Contemporary Art, curated by Paolo Facelli and Francesco Poli presents the work of a selected group of Torino artists that are representative of not only the local, but also of the Italian perspective, with their own national characteristics in an open and stimulating debate with the international scene.

GRAN TORINO: Italian Contemporary Art is an engaging cultural initiative and introduces significant trends and movements of new Italian art to the North American public.
