A new layout for Ca’ Pesaro
From June 1st 2013
Ca’ Pesaro, International Gallery of Modern Art Venice
Within the framework of a historic vocation and renewed interest in modern and contemporary art, the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia has launched a major project to improve the Galleria Internazionale d’Arte Moderna at Ca’ Pesaro. The aim is to restore a dynamic structure to Venice that is open to contemporary work, with a particular focus on those activities of training, study, research and promotion that are integral parts of the specific mission of a civic museum.
The new layout, which will open in time for the 2013 Venice Art Biennale, will be inaugurated with the title Colloqui (‘Talks’), the intention being to recover those relational dynamics and elective affinities within the collections underlying the great contemporary history of Venice which, we should not forget, has in Ca’ Pesaro the first municipal collection of modern art to open in Italy, at the end of the 19th century (at the same time as the foundation of the Biennale).
