Fondazione Vedova
Foundation / Venice

The main aim of Fondazione Emilio & Annabianca Vedova, created by the artist and his wife, is to promote the art and work of Vedova and to highlight his importance in the history of 20th century art through a series of initiatives, such as studies, research projects, analyses, exhibitions, itineraries and teaching spaces, conferences, scholarships and prizes. The activities of the foundation, chaired by Alfredo Bianchini, faithfully reflect the will of the great Venetian artist, who, when thinking together with his wife about the nascent foundation, stressed how the safekeeping and conservation of his works should not be separated from initiatives to promote knowledge about his art, also in collaboration with major international museums and cultural institutions. Moreover, he wished these initiatives should constantly be directed at exploring the themes of painting, space, time, and history, which are in fact the fundamental elements of his art and his commitment. The foundation, near its headquarter at Zattere, has two exhibition spaces. The Magazzino del Sale, designed and installed by Renzo Piano with Alessandro Traldi and Maurizio Milan, is equipped with the latest technology for conserving and showing works of art to the public and will also host works by artists from all over the world to create a dialectical dialogue with Vedova’s works under the supervision of Germano Celant, chief curator, and Fabrizio Gazzarri, director of the Collection and Archive. From June 2010, the restoration of the artist’s studio enabled the foundation to have available the Spazio Vedova, a new multi-functional space able to host events as well as exhibitions.

After fleeing civil war-torn Angola, he and the rest of Uambembe’s family lived on the southern side of the Okavango in what was then South West Africa as part of the 32nd Regiment of the South African Apartheid Army (more…)
