About the Palazzo

The palace was commissioned in the late 15th century by the aristocratic Lando Family, and built on designs by Mauro Codussi, (1440–1504)  an Italian architect of the early-Renaissance.  He was one of the first to bring the classical style of the early renaissance to Venice to replace the prevalent Gothic style.  The present façade is a perfect example, of the Renaissance geometric style designed by Codussi between 1497 and 1500. In the 16th century, the new owners, the Corner family asked Michele Sanmicheli to reconstruct the interior.

The Main Floor ‘Piano Nobile’ is divided by a hallway entrance, and three grand rooms that reflect the classic type of Venetian palaces of the sixteenth century: some ancient frescoes and stucco still intact, rooms are joined by a large balcony overlooking the Grand Canal.

There are six rooms, all painted and adorned with significant antique stucco and spectacular terrazzo floors suited perfectly to an art exhibition those entrances from both historical and contemporary perspectives.

The last word

The exhibitions shall make a meaningful contribution to the program of during 16th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia 2018 not only because of its high artistic quality, experimental methodology and innovative public programming but also since it engages the largest and most rapidly developing regions of the world that have historically been unrepresented as a common platform at the Venice Biennale.

The Stilled Life, New York, January 4th – February 3rd, 2018

About the exhibition

The exhibition will be held January 4th – February 3rd, 2018 in our gallery premises in New York, USA, located in   529 W 20th Chelsea.

When looking at old Dutch and German still life masters, objects have always served to convey a meaning. Some objects have a universal meaning that has remained unchanged until today; while others have developed recently or have altered their symbolic message. These changes are very much dependent on the context, environmental and social influences and other objects around it.

This exhibition explores how a still life artwork – regardless of medium or genre – can tell a complex story. How objects are placed, the composition of the work, combined with the literal and metaphorical symbolic meanings enable an enriching experience for the viewer.

How to apply

Artists working in any medium are invited to apply for this upcoming exhibition, to be held at ARTEPONTE New York gallery premises in Chelsea.

Open to all media: painting, drawing, collage, photography, sculpture.
