VENETIAN PLANS: Contemporary art aficionados gearing up for the opening of the 53rd Biennale in Venice on June 7 have a treat to look forward to this year: The Pinault Foundation will be unveiling perhaps the most anticipated renovation in Venice since the Fenice opera house and the Clock Tower in Piazza San Marco. The Punta della Dogana, the 17th-century building located at the tip of Dorsoduro that divides the Giudecca Canal from the Grand Canal across from St. Mark’s, will open its doors on June 6. After two years of restorations, the Punta della Dogana will host an exhibition in tandem with Palazzo Grassi, owned by the Pinaults, and curated by Alison Gingeras and Francesco Bonami called “Mapping the Studio: Artists from the François Pinault Collection.”

Meanwhile, Vogue L’Uomo will throw a DJ party on June 5 at Palazzo Grassi. The soiree will be sponsored by Gucci Group and is the second time the magazine will celebrate its second Arts Issue at the Biennale. The May-June edition is titled “A Unique Journey into the Artists’ Studios,” and features Richard Prince and Cindy Sherman on double covers, and inside features nearly all the artists showing at the Biennale and around Venice.
