For the first time, one of the most beautiful Venetian palaces, hosting an extraordinary collection of frescoes from the sixteenth century, opens its doors to contemporary art.  Ritsue Mishima, born in Kyoto and living in Venice since 1989, links artistic expression with glass processing techniques. The Japanese artist expresses herself with glass in a contemporary language, through the craftsmanship culture of Murano's glass masters, who "forge" and shape her ideas. Her experience with Murano's glass gave birth to the glass sculptures exhibition entitled IN GRIMANI Ritsue Mishima Glass Work, designed and built especially for Palazzo Grimani's halls, which once housed the collections of the illustrious Venetian families and today are a source of fascination and inspiration for the author. The exhibition consists of 30 large-scale works and 5 installations, designed specifically to communicate with the museum and its exceptional decoration. Among the latter, a large glass case designed by the artist holds 38 precious, minuscule works.
