In the month of May 2020, in the midst of the health emergency, the Photo Action project for Turin 2020 kicked off, the call to the arts conceived by photographers Guido Harari and Paolo Ranzani together with Wall Of Sound Gallery: an invitation to some of the greatest Italian and international photographers to donate one of their works to support together the project of an Extraordinary Fund Covid-19 created by the UGI Association Onlus. More than 100 photographers took part in the appeal and made one of their images available to the project free of charge, proposed for the occasion for a symbolic sum of 100 Euros. Today, five months after the launch of the initiative, the fund has reached a record figure of 70,100 euros.
The GAM of Turin is proud to support and contribute to the project, hosting the works of Photo Action for Turin 2020 for three months in the Wunderkammer space. Visitors, including the holders of the Museum Subscription, with a symbolic ticket of 1 Euro can visit an exhibition which reflects the state of the art of Italian and international photography and simultaneously support the cause.
The entire proceeds from the ticket office will in fact be donated to the U.G.I. ONLUS, as well as the proceeds from the sale of catalogs. Furthermore, during the period of the exhibition it will be possible to buy the 105 prints on display - a single piece, a single print per image - in the format 30x42cm. by booking them on the website https://www.photoactionpertorino.org at the sum of 300 Euros per photograph, also in this case entirely devolved.
