ACP Palazzo Franchetti
ACP – Palazzo Franchetti is a new reality on the Grand Canal in Venice. It is devoted to the promotion of Italian – and not only – art and culture, through original and high-profiles exhibitions, which invite to reflect about the developments in art, examining in depth the Italian and foreign artists, also thanks to the exchange with other Institutions and Foundations - in Italy and abroad – and to the contributions by important curators and art historians.
Thus far an exhibition as “Jean Dubuffet and Venice” (2019), made in collaboration with Jean Dubuffet Foundation in Paris, aimed to present the two turning points in Dubuffet's art both realized in Venice (the show at Palazzo Grassi in 1964 and his participation to the Venice Biennale in 1984); while the show “Massimo Campigli and the Etruscans. A Pagan happiness” (2021), in collaboration with Italian Institutions (the Superintendence in charge of Etruscan area), gives the key for an unpublished analysis about the art of one of the Masters of Italian Novecento.
On the contemporary side ACP – Palazzo Franchetti started to build a permanent collection dedicated to contemporary artworks, looking at the “green” theme through the ACP Green Art Award.
Palazzo Franchetti, with an historical facade and a unique garden on the Canal Grande in Venice, is close to Ponte dell'Accademia and it is the preferred exhibition's venue of ACP.
