NOUVEAU PARCOURS AU MUSÉE ET NOUVELLE PRÉSENTATION DES COLLECTIONS CONTEMPORAINES
CENTRE POMPIDOU, Paris
Opening, Thursday October 19th 2017, 6pm
Starting from this date, the Museum of Modern Art of the Pompidou Center presents a new arrangement of the 4th and 5th floors, where contemporary art since the end of the ‘60s will be on exhibit according to a temporal and thematic development.
Room 12 on the 4th floor, Design and Poor Techniques/Global Tools, hosts works of the permanent collection of designers, architects and artists who agreed with the basic principles of that counter-school (Global Tools), i.e. the improvement and spreading of collective creativity and the social and political role of architecture. Gianni Pettena has on exhibit the original Wearable Chairs, created for the 1971 performance in Minneapolis, as well as the whole installation presented on that same year at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
