Le Stanze della Fotografia is the new Venitian home for photography: the new exhibition and researchcentre will open to the public inside the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, in the Sale del Convitto, on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice. Le Stanze della Fotografia is a joint initiative by Marsilio Arte and Fondazione Giorgio Cini intended to move further along the path begun in 2012 at La Casa dei Tre Oci in Venice – a historic Neo-Gothic building located on the island of Giudecca recently acquired from the Beggruen Institute – in the conviction that photography, among the most interesting modern and contemporary artistic languages, must continue to have its own specific “home” in Venice.
The artistic directorship is entrusted to Denis Curti, le Stanze is conceived as a genuine international centre for research and the appreciation of photography and the culture of the image, alongside the exhibitions in Venice and in the other Italian and foreign cities, the Stanze will offer laboratories, meetings, workshop, seminars with national and international photographers and master’s degrees, in continuity with the cultural design motivated the Casa dei Tre Oci to date, but with a drive and a vision that are even more international.
Wednesday 29 March 2023 Le Stanze della Fotografia will open with an extensive and exhaustive retrospective devoted to Ugo Mulas, presenting an important selection of vintage images never exhibited before now. The exhibition Ugo Mulas. The Photographic Operation, that will be visitable from 29 March to 6 August 2023, has been realised in collaboration with the Archivio Mulas and curated by Denis Curti and Alberto Salvadori, director of the archive. The project coincides with the 50th anniversary of the death of the author on 2 March 1973.
The exhibition programme continues with an exhibition devoted to Paolo Pellegrin in autumn 2023 and with the retrospective "HELMUT NEWTON. LEGACY" in spring 2024.
