CA’ PESARO – INTERNATIONAL GALLERY OF MODERN ART
Modern Art Collection (19th and 20th centuries) of paintings, sculptures and graphic (from Italy and abroad) in Venice
The objectives of the renewed Galleria Internazionale d’Arte Moderna di Ca’Pesaro planned by the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia are several, varied yet precise: it should be a completely renewed venue for exploring Italian and international 20th-century art, a structure able to ‘speak contemporary’, and a dynamic museum that is constantly evolving and open to comparison.
The common thread running throughout the thematic and chronological itinerary of the new layout is Venetian taste for 20th-century art; an itinerary, moreover, that has expanded thanks to a new policy of long-term loans of some extremely important works, which will make it possible to strengthen Ca’ Pesaro’s holdings with some major early 20th-century names: Boccioni, De Pisis, Sironi, Morandi, De Chirico, Burri etc.
The extraordinary collaboration with the Sonnabend Collection and the Sonnabend Collection Foundation of New York will instead complete the museum’s historical overview, which would otherwise end with the 1960s: a major nucleus of works from the principal avant-garde movements of the late 20th century – New Dada, Pop Art, Minimal art and Arte povera – has arrived on long- term loan and will have its European home in Ca’ Pesaro.
