Exclusive artwork, sculptures and paintings at the Mazzoleni Gallery.
In celebration of the 56th Venice Biennale, JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa has partnered with non-profit Italian art collective, the Mazzoleni Foundation, to launch a pop-up art exhibition in the resort’s La Certosa room from 2 May – 19 October 2015. With views over the secluded gardens of the island, artworks by world-renowned contemporary artists including Salvador Dalì and Andy Warhol will be showcased together with carefully selected Italian artists. Alongside this exhibition, the first international sculpture exhibition, Sculptures in the Park will be spread across the resort’s beautiful grounds displaying extraordinary sculptures made from a variety of materials from bronze and resin to marble and wood creating an eclectic and textured journey for the viewer.
Furthermore, those staying at the exclusive La Villa Rose, can appreciate specially commissioned paintings from acclaimed artist, Alan Rankle. Alan is famed for his awe-inspiring series of landscape paintings based on photo-montages that celebrate the art and architecture of the location. The seven commissioned paintings showcase the unique Venetian landscape and art of the city.
