From 13 December 2017, to 26 March 2018, the Centre Pompidou Centre is presenting a major exhibition – a retrospective dedicated to the work of César Baldaccini. The French sculptor famous for his compression of industrial objects and his expansions is one of the most important French artists of New Realism. From his work addressing current themes like over-consumption, he questions through a satirical universe which denounces as much as it intrigues. The exhibition at the Pompidou Centre shows 100 works from around the world, many of which are today considered to be icons of modern sculpture. Undoubtedly one of the most important personalities of the last century, he is the author of the giant Thumb, located in the La Défense business district, a Centaur, in the 6th arrondissement and the bronze trophy for the ceremony of the 'Césars' French Cinema awards.  Showing until 26 March 2017, the exhibition ‘César’ is a unique occasion to see the work of this master sculptor.

Centre Pompidou

The Centre Pompidou, designed by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, is a 20th-century architectural marvel, immediately recognizable by its exterior escalators and enormous coloured tubing. It is home to the National Museum of Modern Art and is internationally renowned for its 20th and 21st century art collections. The works of iconic artists are displayed chronologically over two sections: the modern period, from 1905 to 1960 (Matisse, Picasso, Dubuffet, etc.), and the contemporary period, from 1960 to the present day (Andy Warhol, Niki de Saint Phalle, Anish Kapoor, etc.). In addition to its permanent collections, internationally renowned exhibitions are organized every year on the top floor, where visitors can enjoy a breathtaking view of Paris and its rooftops. Everything you might need to spend a pleasant half-day, or indeed a day in the museum is available: eat at Le Georges, learn more at the public information library, and take a break browsing the shelves of the museum gift shop. At the foot of the Centre, the Atelier Brancusi presents a unique collection of works by this artist who played a major role in the history of modern sculpture.
