Bevilacqua La Masa – Piazza San Marco

8 months ago

The gallery in Piazza San Marco is the main venue of the Venetian Foundation.

The Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation was founded in 1898 shortly after the Biennale of Venice. It owes its name to its founder Felicita Bevilacqua, widow to General La Masa. Felicita Bevilacqua left her family palace, Cà Pesaro, which is located along the Grand Canal, to the City of Venice under the condition that it should be used as a place for artistic culture in the city.
Thus the Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation was founded and rapidly became a point of reference and launching pad for young artists such as Boccioni, Casorati, Semeghini, Gino Rossi and Arturo Martini, to name just a few.
Since its 100th anniversary in 1999, the Bevilacqua La Masa space has hosted exhibitions dedicated to artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Louise Bourgeois, Joseph Beuys, Milton Glaser, Shirin Neshat, Frida Kahlo, Sonia Delaunay, and to the critic Giuseppe Marchiori.
Intended as a space for young artistic research, the Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation continues to pursue its mission after a century of existence. Its goal is to remain true to its founding principles while favouring and welcoming the realization of new and emerging events.

Marsèlleria – Via Rezia

9 months ago

The second space opened by Marsèll was inaugurated on January 13th 2016 in Via privata Rezia 2, Milan. 

As a multi-disciplinary platform, it follows the same aim and vision as the first space of the Marsèlleria Permanent Exhibition in Via Paullo 12/A, Milan, to promote style as a global cultural practice. In an organic osmosis between material and immaterial, the space adapts to the neutral and ever-changing concept. It offers everyone who feels the urge to express themselves a free, polymorphous zone, where to create whatever they want in a radical and personal way. It is the chosen form – from video to performance, from installation to reading to photography – that designs the ambiance and the way it is used, not the other way round. Reality becomes a product of the imagination.

Marsèlleria Permanent Exhibition is a laboratory where limits, possibilities and crossovers of artistic languages are tested. Planning follows emotional, rather than institutional, criteria, with an accent on the Italian milieu. Not being linked to any specific form of art, Marsèlleria Permanent Exhibition is a space that welcomes every expression of creativity. It offers each author the possibility to show himself in a free, frank way, despite of the nature of his work. Radical authenticity is the only principle. No rhetoric, a certain concision. With a soul.
