“Accrochage” is an experiment based on a single, simple rule: select eighty works, which have never been shown since they became part of the Pinault Collection and underline the artist’s search and creative process, not the work’s aesthetic. In other words, “Accrochage” focuses on how rather thanwhy these works were created.
The selection reflects the Pinault Collection as a whole and brings together established and up-and-coming artists: from Sol LeWitt to Prabhavathi Meppayil, from Philippe Parreno to Cerith Wyn Evans, from Pierre Huyghe to Nina Canell, to name but a few. Notwithstanding their radical diversity, these works share a formal simplicity, a suppressed tension that amplify the space of the other, that is of the spectators. This freedom given by the exhibits is the aim of this exhibition. Its title “Accrochage” (hanging-up) is deliberately neutral, unobtrusive and delivers a simple, direct message: look!
