About Venezia Contemporanea

Associazione Culturale Venezia Contemporanea is a non-profit cultural association based in Venice, Italy. It was founded in 2007 with the aim to promote and support international emerging artists. We organize art and cultural events all year round and parallel events to the Venice Art and Architecture Biennale. We cooperate with institutions, exhibition spaces and galleries in Venice, and utilize international art and cultural events. Since 2017 we offer a residency program at the La Storta Exhibition Spaces. 

Between 2019-2021 Venezia Contemporanea gave out 37 fully and partially supported residencies. Due to the uncertainty caused by COVID we were not able to secure funds and therefore we cannot offer supported residency programs in 2022. However, we continue offering paid residency at the La Storta private liveable, working and exhibition space.

We make our best to continue supporting artists by tailoring personal programs and to meet the needs and expectations of artists within our possibilities.
