The Centre Pompidou-Metz, a contempory artistic creation
The Centre Pompidou-Metz, in the city of Metz (Lorraine), is the first major decentralisation project of a cultural institution in France.From visual arts and architecture to design and video, all the creative fields are represented. The Pompidou Centre offers a diverse programme of events including dance, theatre, concerts, films, conferences, youth events and workshops.
In conveying these values, the Centre Pompidou-Metz has the extraordinary advantage of being able to draw from the collections of the Centre Pompidou -National Museum of Modern Art- in Paris which, with its 65,000 works, boasts one of two the world’s finest collections in the field of modern and contemporary art, and the largest collection in Europe.
The Centre Pompidou-Metz has been devised as a unique experience, a space where you can discover artistic creation in all its shapes and sizes, a living space where events take place all year round. The architecture of Shigeru Ban and Jean de Gastines make it an exceptional place. It's both a place of generosity and of excellence, thanks to its multidisciplinary programme based on innovative temporary exhibitions of international standing.
