François Pinault exhibits in the Bourse du commerce, this exceptional setting, part of the riches of his collection of works of contemporary art.
An art lover
A great art lover, François Pinault has acquired more than 10,000 works over the years, building a collection that is among the most highly rated in the world. Paintings, sculptures, videos, photographs, sound works, installations… The artists whose works François Pinault collects come from all countries and represent all generations, with a predilection for emerging trends. This set, dedicated to art from the 1960s to the present day, offers a subjective look that attempts to help capture the era. Valued until then in the prestigious Palazzo Grassi in Venice, it takes up residence in an exceptional building, which was successively a corn exchange from 1763 to 1873, then a stock exchange from 1889 to the end of the 20th century.
