Artissima presents Artissima XYZ, the contemporary art fair's new digital platform that will run alongside the physical exhibitions scheduled to show at the Turin Museum Foundation in Italy. For the 2020 edition, the Back to the Future, Drawings, and Present Future sections will live on the Artissima XYZ digital platform supported by the Compagnia di San Paolo Foundation from November 3 to December 9. The XYZ name itself derives from the intersectional approach of the virtual platform, which translates the physical elements into an immersive experience on digital channels. Some of this content will be produced directly by the galleries and artists, while others will be overseen by Ordet's editorial team, consisting of Edoardo Bonaspetti, Stefano Cernuschi, and Anna Bergamasco.
