La Voce delle Immagini Paroles des Images (Voice of Images)
A selection from the video collection of the François Pinault Foundation, the exhibition unfolds over 2000 sq m, from the ground floor to the first floor of Palazzo Grassi. It illustrates the vast range of artistic expression allowed by this medium - installations, simple pojections, audio recordings, silent pieces - to present works by twent-seven international artists, hailing from China to Venezuela. The works presented cover a period ranging from the 1970's to its most recent acquisitions.
The aim of the exhibition is to offer visitors a sensory journey that oscillates, through the gaze of the artists, between solemnity, angst, humour, and levity. What unites these images, coming from Europe, North and Saouth America, from the Middle East and Asia, is a shared method of questioning the present. If all confront social and economic issues at work in todays world, none of them do so in a literal or unequivocal manner.
