Exhibitions

Casa dei Tre Oci presents the first retrospective dedicated to Fulvio Roiter after his death in April, 2016. The exhibition features 200 photographs, mostly vintage, which tell the entire artistic story of the Venetian photographer. It retraces the entire photographic career of Fulvio Roiter, presenting itself as the most complete monographic never done on the author and the first after his recent death. A tribute and a memory that the Casa dei Tre Oci wants to dedicate to the photographer that more than any another has linked the image of Venice to its name.

Various Venues in Venice
23/05/2018 - 17/06/2018

DESIGN.VE 2018 presents a group show and a number of installations in various locations disseminated across the city of Venice. The group show, which takes place at Palazzo Morosini Gatterburg-one of the historical venues of Generali Italia, focuses on the curatorial concept “Design After Darwin“, which exalts the extensive value of design, seen through its readiness to incorporate other uses, and the use by the others. This facet of the nature of design becomes an active component in the transformation of everyday life due to the power to integrate with the unpredictable paths of the future, and a reinvention of what was only previously imaginable. The programme includes a series... Read More
