Exhibitions

Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Paris!
Now on  - Oct 19, 2020

This major exhibition is dedicated to Christo and Jeanne-Claude's famous 1985 environmental art project, where the mercurial couple wrapped Pont Neuf, the oldest bridge in Paris, in 450,000 square feet of sandstone-colored fabric. They followed it up by wrapping Berlin's Reichstag in 1995, along with many other large-scale civic art installations.

The Pont Neuf Wrapped project attracted three million visitors, with a typically mixed reception for such an unusual art project. It was only granted permission by then Paris' mayor Jacques Chirac after one of his aides sneakily planted the permit form approval into a pile of papers, which Chirac signed inadvertently – having initially balked at the idea.

This fascinating exhibition provides an in-depth look into Christo and Jeanne-Claude's time in Paris, from 1958 to 1964 and 1975 to 1985, with scale models and original lithographs on their various projects. It also includes drawings and collages of their Arc de Triomphe project, which was initially slated for completion in 2020 – now postponed until 2021 due to the pandemic and Christo's own passing in May 2020.

Matisse
Oct 21, 2020  - Feb 22, 2021

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Matisse's birth (1869-1954) the Centre Pompidou has created an exhibit to showcase his essential works. Divided across nine chapters, the Pompidou presents Matisse's work in chronological order and shows a life that was lived for art. Examine the personal language that he developed over time using brushwork, sculpture, and even text.

Alongside the Pompidou's collection are pieces on loan from France's two Matisse museums, Musée Matisse in Nice and the Matisse Museum in Le Cateau-Cambrésis. The Musée de Grenoble and Matisse's family have also loaned a number of works to make the collection even more whole – a feat that hasn't been seen since the 1970s.

Description

With works by Matisse, Cubist founders Picasso and Georges Braque, and home to important pieces that gave rise to art movements like Fauvism, Cubism, and Surrealism, the Centre Pompidou is a must-see in Paris.

Cast your eyes on works by Warhol, the masterful paint splatters of Pollock, and even step into the reconstructed studio of Surrealist poet, André Breton. Lovers of other mediums will also find photography by Cartier-Bresson and Brassaï alongside more contemporary works.
