The next Venice Biennale may still be a year away, but The Art Newspaper reports today that billionaire super-collector François Pinault already knows what he’s doing with Palazzo Grassi, his exhibition space in the city.

Mr. Pinault, the paper says, has planned an exhibition of only film and video art, including works by Mircea Cantor, Yang Fudong, Hassan Khan, Shirin Neshat and Adel Abdessemed (whose recent show at David Zwirner, you may remember, featured a video of a monkey using refrigerator magnets to spell out “Hutu” and “Tutsi” on a wall).
