Inaugurated in 2006 and 2009, Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana are the two contemporary art museums of the Pinault Collection in Venice.
Restored by the Japanese architect Tadao Ando, they alternate group and monographic exhibitions.
The vocation of Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana is to share knowledge and love for contemporary art with the public, in particular through the extraordinary Pinault Collection and to deepen the privileged relationship it has developed with artists, through the creation of works specially conceived for its spaces.
Since May 2013, the Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi has strengthened this broad artistic and cultural program. Conceived by Tadao Ando, this 225-seat auditorium offers an intense calendar of events - conferences, concerts, screenings - and underlines the desire to establish a dialogue with the Venetian and international public.
