Moving art from Mr Pinault

François Pinault

In a surprise move, the billionaire French collector François Pinault will show film and video works from his collection this summer at Palazzo Grassi in Venice (Voices of Images, 29 August-13 January 2013). Around 30 works by 25 artists - including Adel Abdessemed, Mircea Cantor, Yang Fudong, Hassan Khan and Shirin Neshat - will be presented "in a display which highlights the great diversity of the media, projection devices and means of appreciating space and time", says a press statement. Fans of the moving image will no doubt also be keen to view For Beginners by Bruce Nauman, acquired by Pinault in 2011, which will be seen for the first time in Europe.
