Collection Sandretto Re Rebaudengo is a Turin-based collection owned by arts patron Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. Founded in 1995, it has become one of the foremost collections of international contemporary art in Italy today, consisting of over 1000 works dating from the 1970s to the present day.
The Foundation Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, set up by the collector in 1997, is a not-for-profit organization that supports and promotes the development and understanding of contemporary art, and was created in partnership with Italian curator and scholar Francesco Bonami, who was appointed Artistic Director of the Foundation and Collection.
This publication documents four consecutive displays of works from the collection at the Whitechapel Gallery. Each display has been curated by Achim Borchardt-Hume (Chief Curator, Whitechapel Gallery) in collaboration with Francesco Bonami (Artistic Director, FSRR). It includes an in-depth interview between Achim Borchardt-Hume and Patrizia Sandretto, an essay on the act of collecting by Francesco Bonami alongside images and texts on all artworks displayed as part of the collection series. Artists featured include Thomas Demand, Fischli & Weiss, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Anish Kapoor, Cindy Sherman, Rosemarie Trockel and Cerith Wyn Evans.
