The face of Artissima 13, the International Fair of Contemporary Art in Turin, Nov. 10-12, 2006, was a 13-year-old girl, very cute, done up rather raffishly, teenage-style -- that is, probably a little too grown-up for her age. With her heavy mascara and black tube dress, she stared out from the fair map and catalogue as well as from posters around town, urging everyone to "Feel Contemporary" -- the theme of this yearís show.
