Where are we going? Selections from the Francois Pinault Collection

28.04.2006 - 01.10.2006

Palazzo Grassi / Francois Pinault Foundation, Venezia / Italia

Under the watchful eye of the company’s founder, the late Gianni Agnelli, the institution mounted a series of major exhibitions, culminating in the seminal centenary exhibition “Dalí.” With the close of this muchpraised finale in 2005, and the untimely death of Agnelli, Fiat chose to play a less active role at Palazzo Grassi and sold its stake in the enterprise. François Pinault stepped up in May 2005, establishing the company Palazzo Grassi SpA, in which he holds an 80 percent stake....

Where Do We Come From?

Eschewing strict chronology, Ms. Gingeras’s selection highlights some of the most influential art movements of the past sixty years (Art informel, Arte povera, Minimalism, post-Minimalism, Pop art) and takes us up to the present moment with significant offerings from today’s most challenging artists.
