Rennes welcomes excerpts from Pinault’s collection



The Couvent des Jacobins and Musée des Beaux-Arts, in Rennes, France welcome excerpts from the Pinault’s Collection until 9th September 2018.

“Debout !” (“Stand up!”) is staged in Pinault’s native Brittany and features works by internationally renowned artists, including Lucas Arruda, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Maurizio Cattelan, Marlene Dumas, Bertrand Lavier, and Thomas Schütte.

“The artists and works are indeed a reflection of the Pinault Collection, mixing generations of artists. Some works have already been shown in Venice, others have never been exhibited, Rennes will be the first to see them.” Caroline Bourgeois, the curator of the exhibition said.

Two new works were specifically created for this exhibition: Vincent Gicquel’s latest series of paintings will be presented at the Couvent des Jacobins and Tatiana Trouvé’s site-specific installation at the musée des Beaux-Arts of Rennes.

In 2019, the new Pinault Collection will hosted in the Pinault Museum in Paris, inside the Bourse de Commerce, which will be renovated by Tadao Ando Architect & Associates together with the agency NeM / Niney & Marca Architectes, Pierre‑Antoine Gatier agency and SETEC Bâtiment.
