VENICE.- Palazzo Grassi-François Pinault Foundation hosts a monograph exhibition by Urs Fischer from 15 April to 15 July 2012.

This exhibition is the first of a series of monograph exhibitions which will be dedicated to major contemporary artists and held either in tandem or alternation with the thematic shows based upon the François Pinault Collection.

Devised by the artist himself and Caroline Bourgeois specifically for the spaces within Palazzo Grassi, this one-man exhibition by Urs Fischer will comprise around thirty works dating from the 1990s to the present day – some from other international collections, some new creations. The exhibition will occupy the atrium and the first floor of Palazzo Grassi, whilst the second floor will continue to exhibit works from the François Pinault Foundation. It will be accompanied by a publication devised by the artist and by a programme of films he has selected.

The exhibition The World Belongs to You, which ended on 21 February 2012, and the exhibition In Praise of Doubt, at Punta della Dogana until June 2012, have already attracted more than 160,000 visitors since their opening.

Urs Fischer, born in Zurich in 1973, lives in New York and Zurich. His work has been presented in many international institutions such as the Centre Pompidou (Paris), the Kunsthaus (Zurich), the Trussardi Foundation (Milan), Museum Boijmans von Beuningen (Rotterdam), and the New Museum (New York). His participation in the Venice Biennale was considered one of the most striking of the 2011 edition. He has had works in each of the exhibitions at Palazzo Grassi since its reopening in 2005.

Caroline Bourgeois is the curator of numerous exhibitions, including l’Argent, Joan Jonas, Valie Export, Cao Fei, Adel Abdessemed and Loris Gréaud at the Plateau-FRAC Ile de France (Paris), where she was Curator from 2004 to 2008, as well as various shows for the François Pinault Foundation. These latter include the two Venice events The World Belongs to You and In Praise of Doubt, at Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana respectively, as well as Passage du Temps in Lille, Un certain Etat du Monde in Moscow and Qui a peur des artistes ? in Dinard (Brittany).
