MUCHO MAS! is an artist-run space in Turin, founded by Luca Vianello and Silvia Mangosio. Mucho Mas! exhibits emerging Italian and international artists, who undertake research into the role of the contemporary image. The aim of the gallery, together with artists and gallery founders is to exhibit a broad, transversal and critical view on how photography and its profound significance is changing today and how it has lost some of its original connotations, yet contextually it has acquired others that are much more pervasive.
