After 19:00
  • Explore the innards of an inside-out building that's considered one of the 20th century’s most radical high-profile architectural achievements
  • Peruse Europe’s largest collection of modern and contemporary art and take in 20th-century masters like Picasso, Max Ernst, Kandinsky, Matisse, Man Ray and Francis Bacon
  • The top floor looks out onto the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame Cathedral and Sacré-Coeur Basilica. They’re some of the best views of the city, and gazing out onto the rooftops of Paris is a wonderful experience
Franz West
Now on - Dec 10, 2018 (ends today)

With nearly 200 works, this event is an abundant celebration of the Austrian artist's work, from 1972 to 2012. It includes his first rarely exhibited drawings and his first Passstücke (or adaptive) sculptures, as well as a selection of his papier-mâché sculptures. The exhibition is the first great opportunity to evaluate the posterity of West's unconventional approach to art - and his influence on the artistic landscape over the last 50 years.

A Polish Avante Garde
Now on - Jan 14, 2019

The Centre Pompidou's latest exhibition honors the Polish constructivist avant-garde of the 1920s. Peruse the lives and thoughts of two major figures of Constructivism, Katarzyna Kobro and Władysław Strzemiński, through art, typography and industrial design. Much of this has been kept under wraps for political reasons, until now!

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.

I trult enjoyed the collection at the Pompidou center. The 4th and 5th floor had many unexpected and enjoyable pieces. There were also not too many people as there are in other Parisienne museums.

Wonderful museum. But disappointing that there are no tours in English daily. A tour of a museum is always my preferred way of learning.
