Peter Doig and Sean Scully Grand Exhibitions Staged In Venetian Palaces

As well as the events mounted in the two main centres, the Arsenale and the Giardini, the Venice Biennale hosts a number of official collateral exhibitions. The advantages of seeing these collateral events are they are often housed in one of the many Palazzos dotted all over Venice or in the lesser known Museums which are often converted from these palazzos. Two such exhibitions are Peter Doig at the Palazzetto Tito and Sean Scully: Land and Sea at the Palazzo Falier. Both artists are showing new works, many of which have been conceived especially for these shows.
