Starting on 27 May 2015, the Centre Pompidou is exhibiting a new presentation of its modern collection from 1905 to 1965. This circuit, now reworked in depth, returns to a chronological format featuring major historical milestones, introducing visitors to key figures, works and movements making up the history of modern art, together with the "go-betweens" who helped to construct the history of modernity.

Brancusi's Studio

Atelier Brancusi, Piazza Centre Pompidou

Free entrance, from 2p.m. to 18p.m. every day (except Tuesdays and 1st of May)

Born in Romania in 1876, Constantin Brancusi lived and worked in Paris from 1904 until his death in 1957. In his will, he bequeathed his entire studio to the French state.
An exact reconstruction of this was made in 1997 on the piazza opposite the Centre Pompidou to house his collection, consisting of 137 sculptures, 87 bases, 41 drawings, two paintings and over 1 600 glass photographic plates and original prints.

Une saison roumaine au Centre Pompidou

Une saison roumaine au Centre Pompidou - EXPOSITIONS AU MUSEE, à partir du 28 novembre 2018

Atelier Brancusi © Manuel Braun 2014

À partir du 28 novembre 2018

Atelier Brancusi ; Musée - Niveaux 4 et 5


La saison France-Roumanie 2018 est l’occasion de revenir sur un moment essentiel dans l’histoire des dynamiques culturelles internationales du 20e siècle, pour lesquelles Paris est longtemps restée la plaque tournante d’éclosion et d’affirmation, et où les acteurs des scènes artistiques de l’Europe Centrale et de l’Est jouèrent un rôle de premier plan. Le Centre Pompidou a choisi d'éclairer cette histoire à partir de ses collections et quelques figures fondatrices de la modernité artistique et des avant-gardes.
