While cultural venues reopened in France on Wednesday, a new contemporary art museum appeared in Paris on Saturday. Installed in the historic building of the Bourse de Commerce, it presents the collection of works of art by billionaire François Pinault. France 24 shows you around.
Sculptures, paintings, videos, photographs … the Pinault collection presents contemporary art in all its forms.
Located in the Halles district, in the heart of the Bourse de Commerce, this new Parisian museum opened on Saturday, May 22. It hosts a first exhibition entirely designed and imagined by billionaire François Pinault and with the evocative title: “Opening”.
Within this historic building, completed in 1899, a cylinder has been erected in the center of the rotunda. An architectural feat aimed at the marriage of the modern and the old.
