“Accrochage” on view at Punta della Dogana

By Charlotte Boutboul

June 3, 2016

On view through November 20, the Punta della Dogana is presenting “Accrochage,” an exhibition curated by Caroline Bourgeois.

“Accrochage” brings together nearly 70 works that have not been seen in public since they became part of the Pinault Collection. Over two-thirds of the artists have never been presented in an exhibition of the collection, and the show takes up the entire site of the Punta Della Dogana.

The artworks presented underline their authors’ creative process as opposed to their aesthetic. In other words, “Accrochage” focuses on how rather than why these works were created.

Notwithstanding their radical diversity, the pieces share a formal simplicity, a suppressed tension that amplifies the space of the other, that is, of the spectators. This freedom given by the method of display is the aim of the exhibition. Its title “Accrochage” (hanging-up) is deliberately neutral, unobtrusive, delivering a simple, direct message: look!
