“Le Cubisme” at the Centre Pompidou
For the first time since 1953 in France, the Centre Pompidou is devoting an exhibition to Cubism in the form of a broad overview of the history of the movement in Paris between 1907 and 1917.
The project's originality lies in its stated aim to broaden the traditional vision of the movement, which tends to focus on the big names – Georges Braque, Juan Gris, Fernand Léger and Pablo Picasso – to include secondary Cubists, such as Gleizes and Metzinger, or those who were a bit different, like Robert and Sonia Delaunay, Marcel Duchamp and Francis Picabia. They exhibited in the official Paris salons, while the pioneers of the movement reserved their experimental creations for just one young, unknown dealer, Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler. Don’t miss the colors explosion at the Center Pompidou this Indian summer.
