The exhibition, called Michela and Koostler, will include more than 300 works by artists including Marcel Duchamp, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol and Ai Weiwei.
The gallery, on the outskirts of the historic Venetian city, opened in 2006 and will remain open until October.
The museum will also be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the city’s founding by hosting a concert, which is set to begin at 6 p.m.
The concert, entitled The New Music of Venice, will feature a selection of classical music from the city.
