François Pinault Foundation / Palazzo Grassi & Punta della Dogana

Venice | Italy

About the Museum

François Pinault has assembled one of the most important collections in the world including more than three thousand works from the 20th and 21st centuries. Since 2006, Pinault oriented his project along three axes: presenting ambitious exhibitions in Venice; lending works in his collection to museums across the world; and supporting up-and-coming artists and art historians.

His museums are housed in two exceptional buildings in Venice: Palazzo Grassi, acquired in 2005 and inaugurated in 2006, and Punta della Dogana, opened in 2009. Renovated by Japanese architect Tadao Ando they present individual and collective exhibitions that share the extraordinary Pinault Collection and aim to strengthen the priviledged relationship the institution has developed with international artists. Since May 2013, the Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi complements this cultural programme, offering a wide range of events that underline the will to establish a dialogue with a Venetian and international audience.
