The Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere e Arti launched in 2019 a new partnership agreement for the management of the exhibition spaces of Palazzo Franchetti with Art Capital Partners (ACP), a company specialized in the care, administration and production of exhibition projects and high-profile entrepreneurship in the art world.
The “Jean Dubuffet e Venezia” exhibition inaugurates an exhibition program that envisages multi-year development.
There is a close link between one of the most important post-war French artists, Jean Dubuffet, and Venice. The artist returns today as a protagonist with a considerable review, curated by Sophie Webel and Frédéric Jaeger, which intends to pay tribute and remember the importance of two famous exhibitions that, in the lagoon city, marked the artist’s journey: the exhibition at Palazzo Grassi in 1964 and at the French pavilion of the Biennale in 1984, important stages chosen by Dubuffet himself to exclusively present his most recent works of the time.
The exhibition is hosted among the rich history halls of the noble floor of Palazzo Franchetti, a prestigious palace of fifteenth-century origin directly overlooking the Grand Canal and is organized by the company that manages the ACP exhibition site, with the precious collaboration of the Dubuffet Foundation.
