Fondazione Querini Stampalia: Beside being a library and museum centered around 18th century lifestyle contrasted with an impeccable 1960 Carlo Scarpa renovation, this multifaceted foundation regularly hosts contemporary art exhibitions.
Palazzo Fortuny: Once the private home of the Spanish designer, artist and couturier Mariano Fortuny, the palace hosts a permanent exhibition of his personal objects, paintings, clothing and furniture, much just as it was; it also regularly hosts temporary exhibitions of contemporary art and fashion, Italian and international.
Ca’ Pesaro hosts permanent modern art collection and periodic exhibitions of contemporary art.
Fondazione Bevilacqua la Masa at Palazzo Carminati and Palazzetto Tito: for over a century this foundation has been promoting young artists by mounting a wide variety of art events and exhibitions.
Fondazione Vedova at the Magazzini del Sale, presenting the works of Venetian artist Emilio Vedova, one of the most important Italian artists in the post-war art movement. The foundation hosts events and research projects on the themes of “painting – space – time – history” – the fundamental elements of Vedova’s art.
