For the first time in Germany, François Pinault will be showing works from his vast contemporary art collection in the exhibition “Dancing with Myself” at the Museum Folkwang in Essen (7 October-15 January 2017).

More than 100 works by artists such as Roni Horn, Rodney Graham, Steve McQueen, Ulrike Rosenbach and Lili Reynaud-Dewar focus on the idea of “self-representation”, with an entire room dedicated to the US photographer Cindy Sherman.

Pinault continues to show his works outside Venice where he runs two galleries at the Palazzo Grassi and the Punta della Dogana. The collection has toured to Moscow and Seoul, while earlier this year, he announced plans to open a new museum in the heart of Paris to show his collection and stage contemporary art shows.
