Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean and Pinault Collection are delighted to announce their collaboration which will offer the public greater insight into their contemporary art collections.
A first presentation will be displayed in Mudam’s Sculpture Garden, from 20 April to 25 August 2019, with a selection of emblematic works by the Danish-Vietnamese artist Danh Võ from Pinault Collection. Suzanne Cotter, director of Mudam, expressed her enthusiasm for the project: “Mudam is delighted with the collaboration with Pinault Collection, which is undoubtedly one of the most important collections of contemporary art in Europe. Thanks to this dynamic and intellectually generous conversation, Mudam will be able to offer its many visitors a broader context in which to appreciate the works of some of the most signifiant artists of today, and offer an ambitious vision of what a contemporary art collection might be.”
This conversation between the two collections is the result of close consultation with Danh Võ and Caroline Bourgeois, curator of Pinault Collection. The director general of Pinault Collection, Jean-Jacques Aillagon stated: “I am delighted that Pinault Collection and the Mudam, an institution for which I have the greatest respect, are engaging in a cooperative venture which I hope will be longlasting and fruitful. My links with and memories of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg go back a long way, a further reason to take pleasure in this joint initiative, to which Mr François Pinault also wishes to lend his personal support.”
