Jean Dubuffet e Venezia

Now open at the Palazzo Franchetti

A strong connection exists between one of the most important French post-war artists, Jean Dubuffet, and the city of Venice. On two occasions, Dubuffet chose the capital of Veneto to present a preview of his most recent works: at the Palazzo Grassi in 1964 and at the French pavilion of the 1984 Biennale. Presented in the large galleries on the ground floor of the Palazzo Franchetti, a prestigious 15th century palace overlooking the Grand Canal, the exhibition Jean Dubuffet and Venice aims to celebrate and recall the importance of these two famous exhibitions that were to be significant milestones in the artist's career.
