The focus of AREA.lab is experimentation, stimulating the contamination between different languages and different realities.
The cultural world today is a vast network where collaboration and exchange are the basis of professional growth.

The world of culture, in par with the times, is changing, and along with this development come new figures who work as a team for the success of projects and exhibition routes, which ensure the complex dissemination of the cultural machine. 
AREA.lab was created to group most of these figures into a single course, giving students a comprehensive overview of the professions that currently exist in the field of culture and the work each one does.

An innovative course in cultural design, from criticism to curatorship, culminating in a real final project at the Summer Exhibition of the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Turin.


The Goal


The purpose of AREA.lab is to introduce the professional figures that exist in the world of culture today, to bring people into contact with them, and to give them the opportunity to carry out concrete projects directly in the field.

The course, in fact, is developed through a period of face-to-face lectures that will be joined later by workshops with experts in the field and will end with a real design of complete exhibition route.

It will also be possible, for those who stand out, to activate internship paths with the realities that collaborate with AREA.lab.



The structure of the training


AREA.lab will start on February 17, 2023 and end on June 30, 2023.

The first period, from February to April, will be dedicated to face-to-face lectures (about 48 hours) and studio visits.

During this period, the first phase of planning the exhibition itinerary will also begin, with the formation of groups, thematic selection, and identification of the artists from the Albertina Academy who will participate in the Summer Exhibition.

Workshops with experts will be held in April and May 2023, including:

The Summer Exhibition


The Summer Exhibition is the summer exhibition of the students of the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts of Turin and is held annually in the prestigious spaces of the Talucchi Rotunda, and remains open to the public from June to September 2023.

AREA.lab students will have a dedicated space inside the Rotunda, where their exhibition project will be set up. 


Where it will take place

AREA.lab will take place, for face-to-face lectures, inside the classrooms of the Accademia Albertina, Department of Scenography.

The workshops will be held within the Open Incet, in the Scenography labs of the Accademia Albertina.
