The François Pinault Foundation presents its latest exhibition, The World Belongs to You at Palazzo Grassi, which opens to coincide with the start of the Venice Biennale. François Pinault has appointed Caroline Bourgeois as the curator of this exhibition, which was conceived to complement 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”, explains Bourgeois.
