Loan and reproduction requests

Loan request for art works and documents

The activity of Centre Pompidou will be greatly impacted from 2024, due to the closure of its building for renovation and the construction of a new storage site in Massy in the suburbs of Paris scheduled to open in 2026.

In this context, the Centre Pompidou is compelled to place a moratorium on current loans from July 1, 2024, to allow staff to fully dedicate their time to these two important projects.


Therefore, it will no longer be possible to send loan requests to the Centre Pompidou from October 1, 2023, until the reopening of the Centre in 2030.


This moratorium does not apply to partnerships signed in France and abroad for this period.

Please consult the procedure to be followed and conditions of loan before submitting a request by post to the following address:


M. Xavier Rey
Directeur du Musée national d’art moderne/Centre de création industrielle
Centre Pompidou
75191 Paris cedex 04


Caution : Loan requests must be received:

  • For a national exhibition: 9 months in advance of the exhibition opening date
  • For an international exhibition: 12 months in advance of the exhibition opening date
