Opening of major exhibition for summer 2014 at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco

7/14/2014  Culture

The contemporary works of the “Artlovers” exhibition will be on display until September 7, 2014



The “Artlovers” exhibition brings together almost 50 works from the Pinault Collection (more than a third of which have never been shown as part of previous exhibitions of the collection), by 33 artists.

 

The exhibition includes the most famous pieces of the artists concerned – major series (by Maurizio Cattelan, Jeff Koons, Akashi Murakami and his large polyptych designed especially for Palazzo Grassi) as well as rarer, and even original works from Rudolf Stingel to Bertrand Lavier, Jonathan Monk or Sherrie Levine. A third of the pieces on display in Monaco have never previously been shown during exhibitions of the Pinault Collection.

 

The exhibition bears witness to the diversity of media (painting, sculpture, installation, video, drawing, etc.), the generations of the artists (the biggest names from the 1960s to the 1990s are set alongside younger artists) and the geographical regions from which they originate (Europe, America, Asia, the Middle East).

 

This diversity, so characteristic of the Pinault Collection, also reflects its spirit of openness, commitment and generosity.
