Description

To inaugurate the newly renovated Palazzo Grassi in Venice (designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando), its new president and owner, François Pinault, has created a show that presents art from his extensive collection. A billionaire French businessman who runs the retail company PPR, Francoise Pinault has amassed one of the most impressive art collections in the world, in addition to commissioning the work of new and upcoming artists. This book is published in three languages (English, French, and Italian) and is an unofficial follow-up to Where Are We Going? published by Skira in 2006. It features sixteen international artists whose work has been specially commissioned by François Pinault for Palazzo Grassi whose work engages with the traditional mediums of both painting and sculpture. The show consists of work by some of the most thought-provoking artists of our time, including Kristin Baker, Marlene Dumas, Robert Gober, David Hammons, Mike Kelley, Louise Lawler, Takashi Murakami, Laura Owens, and Richard Prince.show more
