REAL VENICE is a major art project initiated by Venice in Peril and Ivorypress that aims to harness the creativity, the vigour, the internationalism – and the financial power – of contemporary art to saving Venice.

Fourteen internationally renowned photographers were invited to visit Venice and create a portfolio of images.  Each photographer donated an edition of their portfolio to be sold in aid of Venice in Peril.

Over the summer of 2011 the Real Venice collection was on display at the Abbey of San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice, in a major exhibition curated by Elena Foster as part of the 54th Venice Biennale.  From 11 October - 11 December 2011 the exhibition was on view at Somerset House in London.  

Many works are currently for sale.  For information about availability and prices please consult the individual artists' pages on this website.
