The museum will open with half of a the French billionaire’s personal collection.
The new space in the old customs post will open with half of a two-venue exhibition drawn from Pinault’s personal collection and featuring works that present “a dialogue between artists of different generations” and “a multitude of artistic expressions and sensibilities.”
The show's second venue is the Palazzo Grassi, Pinault’s other Venice museum. [from afp.com]
