The Institute of Things to Come – Hervé & Maillet

On Thursday 21 September 2017 Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo will open the fourth and last chapter of The Institute of Things to Come, a temporary research centre on futurological scenarios which includes a series of four solo exhibitions and a program of workshops.
The duo Louise Hervé & Chloé Maillet will present The Waterway, a film that combines marine archaeology, thalassotherapy, forgotten civilizations, immortality and post-humanity, offering a contemporary and poetic view on a history of aquatic fantasy.
The artists will also lead a workshop inspired by Jacques Tourneur film The City In The Sea, exploring underwater archaeology and fantasy of eternal subaquatic life confronted to the reality of the conflicts between human and non-human in the Mediterranean.

22 June 2017.


Opening: 22th of June 2017, h 7 pm
For the third chapter of The Institute of things to come, artist Alex Cecchetti exhibits Cetaceans, a polyphonic concerto for a choir, a glass harmonica and a waterphone, exploring dreams, dizziness, time lapses and lucid dreams, as states in which a different form of interaction is produced.

Building Bridges: Curatorial Education and Professional Paths


14 – 15 May 2016
Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin

Celebrating 10 years of its Residency for Young Curators, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo promotes an international symposium on curatorial practices, training programmes and career opportunities for new generations of curators. The event is organised in collaboration with Compagnia di San Paolo, who supports the Residency programme since its first edition in 2007.
30 years have elapsed since the launch of the very first curator courses, and today the international training programme offer is a very broad and varied one, including academic courses and independent study programmes offered by institutions. What is less studied is the critical transition stage from the school setting to the art world: what options can be provided to young curators, who are well-equipped from the point of view of theory, yet often lack professional experience? Which tools, institutional programmes, and independent initiatives are more interesting to analyze in this respect? Are schools and exhibiting institutions talking often enough to one another, both on a theoretical and on an operative level?
The symposium will see the participation of directors from some of the foremost curatorial schools worldwide, of museum directors and curators who will be asked to share their reflections on these topics, comparing their respective positions within the system and the most significant case histories.
The second part of the symposium will focus on the experience of the Young Curators Residency Programme of Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. Launched in 2007, the programme welcomes each year 3 alumni from international curatorial courses, and gives them the opportunity to take a study trip across Italy, with the aim of co-curating a final exhibition to be held in the building of the Foundation. Designed as a bridge between training and profession, the residency has the twofold objective of promoting the knowledge of contemporary art and providing a platform for experimentation, along with the tools for creating a curatorial project.
Through the voices of the protagonists, some of them curators who took part in the various editions of the Residency, or artists featured in the exhibitions, we will review 10 years in Italian art, as it has been received and portrayed in as many shows, which form an archive of artistic approaches and innovative curatorial practices.


The Symposium will take place in the Auditorium of Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Via Modane 16, Turin. The talks will be held in English; a translation service will be provided. Participation is free but booking is required due to limited seating.
