Palazzo Ducale Venezia - From Tiziano to Rubens/Capolavori from Antwerp and other Flemish collection


Let's leave the great contemporary art for just a moment to point out a truly stimulating exhibition that you can visit until the end of winter in the beautiful setting of the Palazzo Ducale. Timeless masterpieces belonging to rare Flemish collections, both public and private, granted extraordinarily on loan, with some works that are shown in public for the first time. From Titian to Rubens is therefore a unique opportunity to explore a golden age for the history of international art and painting. Should we add more?

Palazzo Grassi - La pelle_Luc Tuymans and Punta della Dogana - Luogo e segni


The François Pinault Collection can be considered one of the world's largest collections of modern and contemporary art. It is housed in the Venetian spaces of Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana and is an international reference point for major contemporary art exhibitions.

In this winter season there are still two interesting exhibition projects in the two different locations. Palazzo Grassi hosts "La pelle", the first solo exhibition in Italy of the Belgian artist Luc Tuymans (Mortsel, 1958), as part of the monographic program dedicated to exploring great artists of our time.

In Punta della Dogana, instead, there will be "Luogo e Segni" (Place and Signs), which takes its name from a work by Carol Rama in the exhibition, and brings together 36 artists whose works have a special relationship with their urban, social, political, historical and intellectual context.

It is important to underline the importance of the exhibition projects of an institution like this: quality is assured.

Palazzo Grassi from 24 March 2019 to 6 January 2020

Punta della Dogana from March 24th to December 15th 2019

International Gallery of modern art of Cà Pesaro - Breathless/Senza Respiro


The International Gallery of modern art of Cà Pesaro presents for the end of 2019 a super-interesting exhibition that hosts over a dozen artists of the new generation in London, in a project that highlights all their different artistic declinations, from painting to sculpture, from video to photography, installation, up to the language of performance. Most of the productions are new and are the result of site-specific interventions that allow us to decipher the contemporary London cultural landscape, from the nineties to the most seductive actuality of young avant-garde and innovators. Don't miss it!

From October 19, 2019 to March 1, 2020

Peggy Guggenheim Collection - The last Dogaressa from 21 September 2019 to 27 January 2020


An exhibition project that celebrates the Venetian life of the collector Peggy Guggenheim, revealing how she continued to increase her collection with important works of art after leaving New York, closing the gallery-museum Art of This Century (1942-47) and moving to Venice in 1948. The exhibition presents paintings, sculptures and works on paper selected from those acquired between the end of the 1940s and 1979, the year of the collector's death.

The latest Dogaressa will offer an unprecedented opportunity to review and recontextualize historical masterpieces, such as René Magritte's The Empire of Light (1953-54), alongside rarely exhibited works by artists such as René Brô, Gwyther Irwin and Grace Hartigan, as well as Japanese painters such as Kenzo Okada and Tomonori Toyofuku, who demonstrate the patron's interest in art created beyond the borders of Europe and the United States.

From 21 September 2019 to 27 January 2020
