Paul Thorel Foundation is pleased to announce its participation at Artissima 2022 in the section A Sud The project A Sud is rooted in Artissima’s intention to highlight the activities of art foundations and institutions from the southern and island regions of Italy, reinforcing the focus on the Mediterranean as a place of artistic growth and an incubator of new creative perspectives. The Paul Thorel Foundation is based in Naples, with annexes in Panarea and Hydra. It focuses on the creative potential of the Mediterranean basin, with an interest in contemporary photographic research, new technologies and aesthetic discourses, in response to Paul Thorel’s pioneering research (1956-2020). At Artissima, the Foundation is participating with a booth dedicated to Thorel’s work, in dialogue with his international art collection.
