Giustino Caposciutti/Tea Taramino Plural Art
... in his work as an art educator in 1975 he met the art of people with mental disabilities.
He is fascinated by it and since then he has dedicated a large part of
his work to activities, first in the laboratory, at a large center in
the Vallette district of Turin and later on promoting them through
exhibitions and other events ...
a first exhibition, from the long gestation, of 1985, Segni
Communicanti, and subsequent Communicate with painting 1986, Seeked and
found 1986 at Palazzo a Vela di Torino the long journey of integration
of disabled artists, full of successes but also full of obstacles
because the official world of culture did not recognize this art, the
turning point came when in 1993, together with Tea Taramino, Gianni
Callegari, an official of the Province of Turin, Gianfranco Billotti,
gallerista, gave life to "I painted with ..." .
Each disabled artist was joined in the work by a professional artist
and together they made a work that was then exhibited in an exhibition
and sold at auction for charity.
This formula was so successful that it was later adopted by many other
facilities and services for people in need. It was repeated annually,
edited by Tea Taramino and in 2007 assumed the name of Plural Art.
If, at present, the art of people with psychic disability enjoys a real
consideration, it is largely due to all this journey begun over 40
years ago in Turin.
