Stock Exchange : OPENING ON 22 MAY WITH OPEN DAYS

The Stock Exchange, the museum of the Pinault Collection in Paris, announced on Friday that it will open to the public on Saturday 22 May at 11am. Three open days will be organised to celebrate the museum’s inauguration and reservations will be open from Thursday 6 May on the pinaultcollection.com website.

 

According to the agreement between the head of Kering and Anne Hidalgo, the monument will host the Pinault collection for at least 50 years. This agreement follows the failure of the highly advanced project on the Ile Seguin 16 years ago, which aimed to find a permanent place to display the collection in Paris. It should be remembered that at the end of the concession, the use of the site will revert to the City of Paris.

 

“The opening of the museum, with three free open days on 22, 23 and 24 May, from 11am to 7pm, will take place in compliance with the sanitary conditions in force, with a compulsory online reservation”, the press release states.

 

After that, “the museum will be open every day except Tuesday, the weekly closing day, from 11am to 7pm”.

 

The new art museum that will house the collection of the Breton billionaire and businessman will be accessible by reservation “due to sanitary constraints, online reservation will always be necessary to access the museum”.

 

“With the installation of a new presentation site for my collection at the Bourse de Commerce, in the very heart of Paris, a new stage has been reached in the implementation of my cultural project: sharing my passion for the art of my time with as many people as possible,” said François Pinault.

 

Located in the golden triangle between the Musée d’Orsay, the Louvre and the Centre Pompidou, the historic building was redesigned by Tadao Ando (TAAA), Pierre-Antoine Gatier, chief architect of the Monuments Historiques, the NeM agency, Lucie Niney and Thibault Marca, and SETEC bâtiment. The furniture is by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.

 

 

Tadao Ando wanted “a new space to fit inside the existing one”. with a double revolution staircase known as the Millers’ staircase.

 

“The Bourse de Commerce will be the place where the unforeseeable can become evident, a revelation of creation in the making and a mirror of the world,” said Jean-Jacques Aillagon, Managing Director of Pinault-Collection, during a presentation to the national press.

According to the French businessman: “it will be a place open to artists’ interventions, as in Venice, and which will have an educational and pedagogical vocation in favour of the most diverse audiences and especially those who are usually distant from contemporary art”.

 

 

On the programme? 10,000 works of art in over 6,800 m2 of exhibition space, mediation areas and Michel and Sébastien Bras’ restaurant, La Halle aux Grains.
