CRIPTA747 Residency Programme


From 2017 Cripta747 has ran a Studio Programme to promote the international mobility, the stay in the town of artists from all over the world and the growth of the city’s cultural fabric. Every year they make available 3 studios to artists, curators and researchers who want to spend a period of work and production in Turin. Cripta747 Studio Programme supports all aspects of contemporary art production with particular attentiveness to research and development. It offers a workspace in a context that favours dialogue and pair exchange of ideas and skills between visual arts and other expressive languages.

Cripta747 Studio Programme is influenced by the area’s rich heritage of craft. The proximity to artisanal workshops, family run manufacturing factories and small innovative companies present in the neighbourhood actively contribute to create a stimulating environment and an experimental production approach. In addition to the Cripta747’s team, tutors follow artists’ research and production through meetings, critical conversations, interviews, studio visits, workshops and guided tours. Tutors role is to give a plurality of point of views about present scenarios, giving the artists involved new opportunity of exchange and discussion around their work. Cripta747 organises open studios, which give the opportunity to engage artists directly with audience, to test out new ideas and processes developed during the residency in studio. 


Fellows in residency are invited to present the work developed in Turin through an open studio and a public event. Cripta747 encourages a spirit of openness in the programme’s on-going activities, through participation programmes and public events.

  • OPEN STUDIO: in the first week of November, during the Contemporary art Week and Artissima Fair, there is the open studio. The opening of places dedicated to artistic production offers to public, as well as the artists involved, the unique opportunity to see and discuss issues and processes related to the research carried out in the months of residence.
  • PUBLIC EVENT: The organizers also ask the residents to think out and plan an event such as a talk, a workshop, a screening, a lecture or a conference, realized during their residency with the support of Cripta747’s staff, to directly engage the audience.
