Bourse de Commerce: The New Museum of the Pinault Collection

The Bourse de Commerce – Pinault Collection opens its doors to the public with a collective exhibition bringing together two hundred works from over thirty artists. This presentation makes use of all ten exhibition spaces and showcases in-situ works throughout the visit, from the outside to the inside of the building.

“The opening of the Bourse de Commerce, a new site in the heart of Paris to display my collection, marks a new phase in the execution of my cultural project, which is to share my passion for contemporary art with the widest possible audience.” François Pinault

The Bourse de Commerce – Pinault Collection is the latest museum in the network of sites and initiatives developed by François Pinault since 2006. It offers a perspective on the contemporary art collection he has amassed over the past forty years, through a unique programme of exhibitions and events.

The collection, an exceptional ensemble of over 10,000 works by almost 400 artists, features paintings, sculptures, videos, photographs, audio works, installations, and performances. The artists collected by François Pinault come from all over the world and represent every age group. The collection encompasses all fields of creation and reveals the collector’s particular penchant for emerging trends. This ensemble, dedicated to art from the 1960s to the present day, presents a vision of the art of our times, through the gaze of a passionate art lover, offering a subjective perspective that reflects its era.

The collection is presented through a dynamic programme of temporary and regularly changing exhibitions: thematic displays based on works in the collection, exhibitions dedicated to artists whose works are included in the collection, as well as carte blanches, specific projects and commissions.
The Bourse de Commerce – Pinault Collection has ten exhibition galleries, including a Studio dedicated to video and audio works, as well as freer forms, outreach spaces and an Auditorium for conferences, meetings, screenings, concerts, and events.

Open to all audiences and every artistic discipline, featuring works that are already part of the history of contemporary art and those by emerging artists, the Bourse de Commerce – Pinault Collection welcomes connoisseurs and the curious-minded alike. It encourages them to open up to art and the history of contemporary art, regardless of the relationship they have with creation or their experience, whatever their level of expertise, and their understanding of the works.

In Venice, two historical buildings, the Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana, were transformed into museums to present François Pinault’s Collection. Similarly, he chose to preserve and transform a symbolic Parisian building, part of the city’s historical heritage, and to open it up to the public. The Bourse de Commerce was restored and transformed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando (TAAA – Tadao Ando Architect & Associates), NeM agency / Niney et Marca Architects, and the Pierre-Antoine Gatier agency. Work began in 2017 and was completed in February 2020.

The Bourse de Commerce building illustrates four centuries of architectural and technical feats. It associates the first free-standing column in Paris, erected in the 15th century for Catherine de’ Medicis’ palace, with the vestiges of a granary impressive for its circular 18th-century design, which was capped in 1812 with a spectacular metal and glass dome. The building was then modified in 1889 to become the “Paris Stock Exchange”.
Today, the monument has been injected with new life thanks to Tadao Ando’s contemporary architectural contribution. The Japanese architect creates the conditions for a dialogue between the architecture and its context, between heritage and contemporary creation, between past and present, and between the collection and the visitor. To date, the Bourse de Commerce – Pinault Collection is the largest project designed by Tadao Ando in France.
