Tribute to Pietro CascellaArsenale, Giardino delle Verginifrom June 7 to November 22A Tribute to Pietro Cascella is motivated by the lasting relevance of that which was his greatest intent as a sculptor: to work at a monumental environmental scale, creating spaces of participation and memory of Mediterranean anthropological legacies and shared civic values. From the monument at Auschwitz, 1967, to the most recent Ara Pacis. The event is curated by Luca Beatrice, Beatrice Buscaroli and Enrico Crispolti.opening hours: 10am – 6pm closed on Tuesdaysadmission with ticket of the 53rd International Art ExhibitionOrganization: Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali PARC Direzione generale per la qualità e la tutela del paesaggio, l’architettura e l’arte contemporaneewww.parc.beniculturali.itADACH Platform for Venice

Alessandro Verdi: floating in uncertainty
Arsenale, Castello 2126/A (Campo della Tana)from June 7 to November 22
Life is on a collision course between space and time, between Eros and Thanatos, and in this clash Man seeks the intense sum of his emotions, as in Alessandro Verdi’s works. A sense of spatial negation is staged in his works, to the point of a maniacal exhibitionism of the figure, pressed on the two-dimensional substance of the pictorial space. The event is curated by Achille Bonito Oliva.opening hours: 10am - 6pm closed on Tuesday

Palazzo Zenobio, Dorsoduro 2596 (Fondamenta del Soccorso)
from June 4 to November 22
Palazzo Zenobio will host AttaKim: ON-AIR by Korean artist Atta Kim. Atta Kim is a philosopher and a man of thought rather than an artist. He developed a unique view of the world through his own exceptional training for a long time.

Kim also shows a way in which photography can be used as a conceptual/abstract form.opening hours: 10am - 6pm, closed on Monday
