The Centre Pompidou, Paris and Shanghai Tix Media Co., Ltd. present “Masterpieces from the Centre Pompidou 1906-1977”.
A unique exhibition, Masterpieces showcases a panorama of art in France from 1906 (date which marks the advent of Fauvism) to 1977 (the year the Centre Pompidou opened to the public), with one work per year and per artist, including world famous masters such as Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, etc. to lesser known though very important names. It will be a celebration, an opportunity to share the wealth of the collections of the prestigious Centre Pompidou with the Chinese public in all breadth and variety: from sculptures and installations to paintings and drawings, photography, film or design.
Masterpieces will also be a unique opportunity for the public to discover or to explore Western modern art history, through a variety of documents and explanations, screenings, talks and conferences, educational programs and family tours.
