Overview

The museums part of Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana are currently closed to the public. Both museums will reopen on April 9, 2017. Inaugurated in 2006 and 2009, Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana are two contemporary art museums. Renovated by Japanese architect Tadao Ando they present personnal and collective exhibitions. Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana aim to share with the public the extraordinary Pinault Collection and to strengthen the priviledged relationship the institution has developed with artists, especially thanks to works specifically conceived for its exhibition spaces. Since May 2013, the Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi complements this artistic and cultural programme. Conceived by Tadao Ando, this 225-seat auditorium offers a wide range of events - conferences, concerts, screenings - that underline the will to establish a dialogue with a Venetian and international public.

The building is beautiful and the renovation to a high standard, but it's not so exceptional and the exhibition itself we didn't like so much (although that's very subjective to our taste). The ticket price seemed expensive at 18 € for a visit that needs...More

As per usual, Hirst seems more interested in maintaining his collector's interest rather than that of any serious artistic merit. I have seen frequent praise on here crediting his 'concept', presumably referring to the half hearted comment on the world of post-truth in which we...More
