• Visit the outlandish exhibit at the Punda della Dogana Gallery

    2011-04-19

    Travelers who head to Italy are typically looking to see some of the most well-known artworks of all time. However, visitors of Venice who are partaking in Europe travel may be surprised as to the newest exhibit being offered at the Punta della Dogana Gallery.

    The Associated Foreign Press reports that a new exhibition from French billionaire Francois Pinault's personal collection is causing quite a stir, as it features everything from the works of Jeff Koons to a headless horse.

    Pinault considers himself a self-made art buff, and the news provider reports that his collection is now giving Venice's Guggenheim some competition in the amount of visitors.

    "We have around 350,000 to 400,000 [people] come through each year. Almost as most as the Guggenheim and markedly more than the Accademia art museum," Martin Bethenod, the galleries' director, told the news provider.

    The Financial Times reports that although he's from France, Pinault has a tendency to favor Italian artists, although he was quick to point out in an interview that what it comes down to for him is quality.

    Travelers may want to be sure to check out this exhibit while in town, after all, it's not every day you see a headless horse in a museum.
