New discoveries from one of the largest contemporary art collections. Accrochage brings together about seventy works from the Pinault Collection produced by thirty artists since the 1970s. The works--never shown before in the Venetian venues of the collection--are the outcome of minimal gestures and artistic research focused on the theme of the void. Fabio Mauri, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Sol LeWitt, Charles Ray, Roman Opalka, Bernd Lohaus, Thomas Schutte, Goshka Macuga, and Niele Toroni are only some of the artists taking part in a show that becomes a place of meeting, relations, questions, and comparison between different ways of practicing art.
