Full description
The Centre Pompidou, located in the Beaubourg area of the 4th arrondissement, was inaugurated in 1977 and is a masterpiece of President Georges Pompidou. A library, music, acoustics research center, and a museum, this unusual cultural institution, also known as the Centre Beaubourg, combines modern and contemporary creations, including plastic arts, books, design, music, and cinema.

With over 100,000 works, the collections make up one of the world's leading references for the art of the 20th and 21st centuries. From the great historical collections to the most recent acquisitions, they cover the visual arts, drawing, photography, new media, experimental film, architecture, design, and industrial prospects. You will find key works, rediscover iconic artists (like Henri Matisse, Georges Rouault, Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso, Sonia et Robert Delaunay, Fernand Léger, Vassily Kandinsky, František Kupka, André Breton, Alberto Giacometti, and Jean Dubuffet), and the founding movements of modern art (Fauvism, Cubism, Surrealism, Lyric Abstraction and Geometric Abstraction).

This extensive and incomparable collection retraces the high points in the development of modernity, shedding light on its complexity, genealogies, exchanges and cross-overs, and the go-betweens who helped to write the history of art in the first half of the 20th century. Discover the new hang of contemporary collections devoted to works that have recently entered the museum through the generosity of patrons, artists, and donors. Built around themes and artists, this journey invites you to explore the art of the present, open to the world.
