Exhibitions
Prehistory: A Modern Enigma
Now on - Sep 16, 2019

Prehistory: A Modern Enigma presents the works of some of the most important artists of the 20th and 21st centuries who were haunted by the question of modernity and captivated by the allure of prehistory.

See artifacts from the Palaeolithic and Neolithic period, such as fossils, flints, and menhirs cunningly arranged next to the works of Barbara Hepworth, Louise Bourgeois, Max Ernst, and other contemporary artists.

The exhibition takes visitors on a chronological journey by placing mankind's early engravings, such as the Mammoth of la Madeleine and the modern works of Cézanne and Louise Bourgeois alongside to show humanity's unyielding will to create – and leave behind a trace of us.

Description

Much maligned when it first opened, it took people some time to realize that the Centre Pompidou wasn’t a monster, it was simply new. Radically new. It’s fitting that this rule-breaking building hosts so many iconoclastic modern masterpieces. Join the priority line and get right into a building that wears its innards on its exterior.

Slap bang in the middle of Paris, the Centre Pompidou is best described as a building turned inside-out. Utilitarian features like plumbing, air vents, and cables form part of the external façade and it’s all rendered in see-through glass.

That sets the stage for the groundbreaking art inside. Start on the top floor and take in the various isms: Fauvism, Expressionism, Cubism, Dadaism, and Surrealism, all laid out chronologically over the course of the 20th century. Along the way, you’ll see works by Picasso, Man Ray, Chagall and many, many more.

From 1960 onwards, the works shift from modern to contemporary. Andy Warhol is the most recognizable name, but art by luminaries like Richard Hamilton, Dan Flavin and Louise Bourgeois will also make an impression.

The center also includes a vast public library, a research center for acoustics and music, and some of the best views of the city. Take in what you like, but don't miss a chance to visit the top floor and take in the Eiffel Tower and rooftops of the world's most romantic city.

Really poor. The centre is quite overestimated. I'd use free time in Paris to visit other more interesting stuff.

Nicely quiet in the galleries from 7pm on. View from the terrace on the top floor is wonderful.

Fantastic building, beautifully organized spaces and structures. A different view of the city from each floor. A great collection of works of modern and contemporary art. From the other side of the building you can also enter the public library - a wonderful place, open for all! I planned to spend about two hours there, but couldn't leave it even after four hours. E-ticket was a great way to avoid the queue. Purchasing the ticket through Tiqets was very easy.

Saw the queues so jumped on to buy tickets, especially as it was raining. Made it much easier
Sad that my friend had to throw away his Swiss Army knife, more publicity about this would be helpful.
