The activities of the Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation are mainly focused on the promotion of contemporary art, with the creation of exhibitions by living artists of international renown, and activities involving young artists, and in particular those of the Triveneto. In the two expository venues, in the twelve workshops, in the two guest houses and in different outdoor spaces, the Foundation also organizes artists' studios, meetings, conferences, often in collaboration with universities and art centres both Italians and foreigners. The two venues opened to the public are the Gallery of St. Mark's Square, under the arcades of the New Procuratie and Palace Tito near San Barnaba Square. As far as the St. Mark's square Gallery space spreads over two floors and is suitable both for historical exhibitions and purely contemporary exhibitions. The offices of the Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation are located instead in a building in San Barnaba in Dorsoduro, former residence of the Venetian artists Ettore and Luigi Tito, who designed the decorations of the façade. The reviews housed therein are purely contemporary.
