The “Madonna con Bambino” (”Holy Mary with Child”) is a mural painting discovered, or better discovered again, during the renovating works of Ca’ Foscari finished in 2005 and situated in the main hall of Palazzo Giustinian dei vescovi, set in a niche over a wooden door.
“Russias! Memory, distortion, immaginary.”
The curators Giuseppe Barbieri and Silvia Burini propose to “show” you the Story and the stories of Russia in the whole XX century through Art, gathering, for the first time, works coming from two private collections and little known by the public: the collection Morgane and the Sandretti one.
Today at Punta della Dogana there will be a class about the operas of Fishli & Weiss (part of “Mapping the Studio” exposition).
This is the first of 30 appointments, one every Wednesday until the 9th June 2010. Today the subject will be “Talk with the opera. Experience the contemporery art”. The lesson (by Angela Vettese) will be organised as in the past: an exchange of ideas about an opera wich is in front of you.
This is mainly addressed to the students of Ca’ Foscari (Venice’s University) and Accademia, but also to any venetian or tourist who want to partecipate. Starting from 18:00 there will be the Happy Hoour at the Museum’s café, until the closing time.
Not every presentation will be at Punta della Dogana, the next one (14th October 2009) will be at Palazzo Grassi.
The aim of this project is to involve the public in the activities of Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana: a new kind of Museum!!!
