THE WORLD BELONGS TO YOU
2 June - 21 February, 2011

On June 2, 2011, François Pinault Foundation presents the exhibition The World Belongs to You at Palazzo Grassi. François Pinault has appointed Caroline Bourgeois as the curator of this exhibition, which was conceived to coincide with the exhibition In Praise of Doubt at Punta della Dogana, and presents another re-assessment of the traditional limits of the geography of art, and how we relate to others and the world.

The World Belongs to You brings together works by artists from different practices, generations, and backgrounds, exploring artists’ relationships to history, reality and its own representation. «The exhibition revolves around major themes of contemporary history: from the breakdown of symbols, to the temptation of self-withdrawal and isolation, the attraction of violence and spirituality in a troubled and globalised world” (Caroline Bourgeois).
