Venice Carnival is one of the most fascinating traditions of my country. When ancient costumes, meet contemporary art, it becomes simply spectacular. With its perfect triangular shape, Punta della Dogana split the Grand Canal from the Giudecca Canal. The former monumental port is the permanent seat of the works from the collection of François Pinault after a major refurbishment project commissioned by François Pinault Foundation. The building is so unique and distinctive, feature changes so for the first time in its history, leaving the trades and becoming the harbor mouth to the peaks representative of contemporary artistic production and the place of choice to share with the wider public .
The exhibition Elogio del Dubbio, is curated by Caroline Bourgeois. It gathers historical works and new productions, some of them specially designed for Punta della Dogana. Exploring the idea of Uncertainty, as in Horst&Edeltraut new issue, the exhibition is questioning certainties in terms of identity and relationships. Twenty artists are presented and almost half of them have never been shown in previous exhibitions of the François Pinault Collection.
