Since its establishment in 2002, the GAA Foundation has become an important measure in the organisation of worldwide contemporary art and architecture exhibitions, especially in Venice, Italy. Documenting the current developments in art and architecture in four beautiful Venetian Palaces as an official part of the Venice Biennale, the Foundation’s exhibitions offer extensive resources for a wide range of international visitors, year-round. Annually we organise at least four major exhibitions in Venice; several books and exhibition catalogues are published each year; comprehensive educational programs are offered continually. Additionally, we award once a year the GAA Foundation Prize.
