With the Leo Award this year, ICI recognizes Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. Through the Fondazione, Sandretto Re Rebaudengo has actively promoted artists through exhibitions and the production of new works; fostered new and growing audiences through education; and created institutional partnerships for the support of contemporary art. Among many international affiliations, Sandretto Re Rebaudengo is a member of MoMA’s International Council, the New Museum’s Leadership Council, the Advisory Committee for Modern and Contemporary Art of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Board of Governors of the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College. Reflecting Sandretto Re Rebaudengo’s commitment to the curatorial field, the Fondazione launched in 2007 the Young Curators Residency Programme, and in 2012 the Campo course for curators, providing early professional opportunities.
