Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
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!
The artists on view include: Absalon, Nina Canell, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Tacita Dean, Peter Dreher, Cerith Wyn Evans, Fernanda Gomes, Pierre Huyghe, On Kawara, Edward Krasiński, Louise Lawler, Guillaume Leblon, Sol LeWitt, Bernd Lohaus, Goshka Macuga, Fabio Mauri, Prabhavathi Meppayil, Jean-Luc Moulène, Henrik Olesen, Michel Parmentier, Philippe Parreno, Florian Pumhösl, Charles Ray, Thomas Schütte, Haim Steinbach, Niele Toroni, Günther Uecker, Dewain Valentine, and Franz West.
