CORRER MUSEUM

St. Mark’s Square

PALLADIO and/in VENICE. Through 10 January 2010.

The show, part of Palladio’s 500th birthday anniversary, produced by the Veneto Region and coordinated by the special Regional Anniversary, traces the history of the great Renaissance architect’s ties with Venice. On view are over 300 works – prints, manuscripts, documents and drawings – that offer a view of the Venice environment in Palladio’s time and during his activity in the city (both theoretical works and actual projects that were designed, built or lost).

Special attention is paid to Palladio’s work of redesigning the unique and symbolic Venetian urban scene of St. Mark’s Basin, with his facade of San Giorgio Maggiore, the votive Church of the Redentore on the Island of Giudecca, and the Zitelle Complex, producing a breathtaking result of extraordinary innovative force.

The exhibition was organized in collaboration with the Marciana National Library and the University of Venice (IUAV) and offers a compelling multimedia section open to the public.

Open 10am to 7pm; last admission, 6pm.

Admission (to all St. Mark’s Square museums): € 13.00, discounted, € 7.50. Free for Venice residents.

Artists from François Pinault Collection.

A large exhibition on view in two buildings marks the opening of a new museum dedicated to contemporary art, at the Punta della Dogana, a historic complex built in the 17th century and which once served as customs house and recently redesigned by architect Tadao Ando.

Conceived as a single artistic journey, the show offers some 300 works from François Pinault’s art collection, presented as dialogues between artists of various generations, of various artistic forms of expression and sensibilities: from artists whose works are well represented in the collection – such contemporary art luminaries as Jeff Koons, Sigmar Polke, Rudolf Stingel, Cindy Sherman and Richard Prince – to new emerging talents and artists who have been unjustly ignored by the art world.

Curated by Alison Gingeras and Francesco Bonami.

CA’ VENIER DEI LEONI

St. Gregorio, Dorsoduro 704

Boat lines 1 to Salute, 1-2 to Accademia

Robert Rauschenberg: Gluts.

Open through 20 September.

The “Gluts,” works that Rauschenberg meant as expressions of glut, excess, surplus of supply, are some forty sculptures created by the artist intermittently from 1986 to 1995. He began the series in the 1980s, when he turned toward an exploration of the visual properties of metal. Assembling found metal objects such as gas-station signs, deteriorated automotive and industrial parts littering the landscape, he transformed the scrap-metal detritus into wall reliefs and freestanding sculptures that recalled his earlier Combines. A year after the artist’s death the prestigious Collection pays tribute during the high season of contemporary art in Venice to one of the greatest and most influential American artists in the postwar generation.

Masterpieces of Futurism at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Through 31 December.

  1. Να τι συνέβηκε με το λάθος: Το ίδρυμα απέστειλε πλήρες βιογραφικό μου και όλα τα σχετικά προς την έκθεση στα Ιταλικά (και όχι στα Αγγλικά).
    Αλλά οι Ιταλοί, ονειρευάμενοι πάντοτε το "Αμερικάνικο Όνειρο", πέρασαν ότι τους εντυπωσίασε περισσότερο κλπ.
    Επί πλέον, αναγράφεται και σε άλλες αναφορές ότι οι πίνακες δημιουργήθηκαν "σε συνεργασία με τους σπουδαστές μου.." !!!!
    Εξ άλλου, υπάρχουν αναφορές, όπου μπορεί να δει κανείς ότι η σχολή Καλών Τεχνών, έχει κλείσει συνάντηση ανάμεσα σε σπουδαστές της και σε σας.
    Από το ίδρυμα ζήτησαν την επανόρθωση του σφάλματος περί Αμέρικα Αμέρικα και της από κοινού δημιουργίας, ενώ για το δεύτερο, μου εξήγησαν ότι θεωρούσαν πως θα παραμένατε τουλάχιστον τον πρώτο μήνα στην Βενετία, εξ ού και η προγραμματισμένη συνάντηση
