Established in Turin in 2008 by Elisa Troiano, Renato Leotta and Alexandro Tripodi, CRIPTA747 is an institution 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.
