Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo

Collector, networker and founder of Turin and Madrid’s Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo

It is one thing to have a private foundation in which to show one’s collection, mount ambitious exhibitions with works from other people’s collections and provide an education programme to young curators. It’s another to have two of them. This year Sandretto Re Rebaudengo announced that she would be opening a Madrid space to complement her Turin institution; it’s to be designed by David Adjaye and will be located at the Matadero Madrid. In Italy Sandretto Re Rebaudengo staged a series of solo shows – featuring the likes of Alex Cecchetti, Kapwani Kiwanga and Bedwyr Williams – under the title The Institute of Things to Come, as well as exhibitions by more established names such as Harun Farocki and Hiroshi Sugimoto. She sits on boards and councils at MoMA, the New Museum, Tate and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and is an adviser to the Art Basel Cities programme, among other activities.
