Grand Tour 2014

Palazzo Grassi, Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi
12/05 - 12/06/2014


The new project Grand Tour is conceived as a moment of training and growth through the exchange of knowledge, experiences, ideas and goals between museums and institutions in Europe.
For the first edition, Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana open their doors to the education department of the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo from Turin, an important centre for contemporary art in Italy. The staff from the Foundation have planned two days of talks and activities for all age groups.

Friday, December 5 at the Teatrino, 3pm
Art Kit: 10 questions to talk with art
For teachers, museum staff, tour guides

The staff from the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo tells us about their special method to approach contemporary art works and then involve us in a practical activity. "Art Kit" is an incredible tool to discover today's art, useful for everyone who works in education and cultural mediation and wishes to reflect on their own professional practice.
This event is a training activity for which a certificate of participation can be requested.

Saturday, December 6 at Palazzo Grassi, 10am
Conversation on light
For secondary school classes accompanied by their teacher

The discovery of contemporary art like meeting someone we do not know and with whom we would like to establish a contact, to develop an exchange or even simply a moment of discussion: this is the approach suggested by the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. At Palazzo Grassi, the education department of the Foundation invites secondary school classes to a guided tour of the exhibition "The Illusion of Light", involving the teenagers in an intense exchange of questions and answers that lead us to the reading of art works and to understanding their themes.

The Big Draw
For visitors aged 0 to 99

Look, think, invent and take action: this is the process that is triggered when we draw something. Palazzo Grassi turns into a great workshop of collective drawing for people who like to draw and people who are convinced they are incapable of drawing. The visitors of all ages have the possibility of taking part by walking freely in the museum and stopping at the 6 stations set up in the exhibition rooms. Discover all the secrets of drawing techniques and contribute to the final drawing. Prerequists to participate: spirit of adventure and desire to be all together!

Practical information
Participation to all the activities is free.
Those who are older than 11 must buy a ticket to enter Palazzo Grassi.
