The Centre Pompidou, Paris and Shanghai Tix Media Co., Ltd. are happy to announce the presentation in Shanghai of the exceptional exhibition Masterpieces from the Centre Pompidou 1906-1977. This touring exhibition will take place at Shanghai Exhibition Center from October 7, 2016 to January 15, 2017, after a first stop in Japan at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum from June to September 2016.
A unique exhibition, Masterpieces will showcase 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.
