DINARD.- François Pinault accepted Dinard’s offer to present a selection of artworks from his collection at the Palais des Arts with much enthusiasm. This initiative fits perfectly with his involvement in contemporary art in favour of travelling exhibitions, which ultimate aim is to share his passion with a large public.

After major exhibitions in Lille (Passage du Temps, 2007-2008) and Moscow (Un Certain Etat du Monde ? 2009), it is now Dinard’s turn to play host to the collection. This exhibition shows François Pinault attachment to the region of his birth, Brittany.

François Pinault’s curator Caroline Bourgeois is in charge of the exhibition. Through her selection of (most representative) works from the Collection, she leads the public into the collector’s atypical and bold steps, while making them see through his eyes : breaking with trends and established values, and showing interest in the most visionnary – and sometimes puzzling – artistic creations. « It is also the portrait of a true enthusiast, whose profoundness shows in his collection» says Caroline Bourgeois.

The exhibition puts the emphasis on four main aspects of contemporary art history:

> works stemming from a concept, (ie the minimalist movement, which favours the idea to the expression)

> art history being revisited and reinterpreted by contemporary artists

> popular, mass culture icons and items turning into art

> artists sharing their original views on our contemporary world (through such topics as consumers’ society, search for utopia, wars…)

The Dinard exhibition offers to mirror contemporary obsessions through eye opening and conscience awakening works of art.
