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 international practices and debates, offers a programme with open-ended and process-based residencies, talks and lectures, screenings, 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 between visual art and other expressive languages. This cultural policy makes CRIPTA747 an open platform of exchange that fosters collaboration with small-scale similar projects and organizations to support artistic and discursive methodologies of production, mobility and the creation of an active network.
CRIPTA747's headquarters, an industrial building located in Barriera di Milano, Torino. A working-class neighbourhood that holds together different souls, such as art insititutions, clubbing, social projects and craft. CRIPTA747 provides three wide well-lit work studios characterized by a concrete floor, white walls and high ceilings with easy access to tools, workshops, and on-site technical expertise. The venue opens on to a big private courtyard shared with architecture and design studios, and artisans’ workshops (carpenters, blacksmiths, movie set makers, ...). Each studio - 56m2, 35m2 and 18m2 - consists of a single room on the ground floor with different characteristics that make it suitable for various kinds of practices and production. All spaces are accessible 24/7. The structure has got a kitchen, a living area, a bathroom and a storage.
