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.

  • How we remember tomorrow
    Feb 13 – Jun 15, 2024
    University of Queensland Art Museum
    Brisbane, Australia
    How we remember tomorrow celebrates storytelling across generations, through oceans and waterways and transcending eras and perspectives. Featured artists understand the watery spaces of our planet as ancestral archives: sources of knowledge that carry stories and cultural practices. Alongside their kin, they honour intergenerational narratives that are disseminated along ocean currents despite ongoing colonial legacies of forced displacement, homeland dispossession, indenture and the loss or dormancy of vital cultural practices.
