The Palazzo Grassi is situated in Venice (Italy) and inaugurated in 2006 and 2009. Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana are the two contemporary art museums of the Pinault Collection in Venice. The building, where personal and collective exhibitions are shown, has been renovated by the Japanese architect Tadao Ando. Palazzo Grassi aims to share with the public the knowledge and love for contemporary art through the extraordinary Pinault Collection and to strengthen the priviledged relationship the institution has developed with artists, especially thanks to works specifically conceived for its exhibition spaces.
Since May 2013, the Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi complements this artistic and cultural programme. Conceived by Tadao Ando, this 225-seat auditorium offers a wide range of events -conferences, concerts, screenings- that underline the will to establish a dialogue with a Venetian and international public.
The lighting of this palace has been designed by Studio Ferrara-Palladino and the manufacturer of its custom made luminaires and spots is Flos.
