A personal art collection housed in a newly transformed historic building, the Bourse de Commerce – Pinault Collection is a truly one-of-a-kind cultural site. Here, French billionaire and lifelong art-lover François Pinault shows some of his 10,000 works by renowned names such as Cy Twombly, Cindy Sherman, Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons – as well as other boundary-pushing contemporary artists – in an ever-evolving exhibition.
This site of multiple renovations and renewals was home to Catherine de Medicis’ palace in the 1600s; the current building was constructed in the 1700s as a wheat storage facility. It became the Paris stock exchange (Bourse) in 1854. The spectacular update into contemporary art gallery creates a dynamic space where 19th-century ceiling frescoes celebrating colonialism are confronted with modern art that questions, provokes and sparks humor.
