The hang puts the accent on the European section of the gift promised to the Centre Pompidou Foundation, bringing together the works of around thirty-five artists. Major themes are addressed in this circuit through this remarkable collection: the exhaustion of subjects in painting, reinvented modernism and the question of gender. With works by Martin Barré, Philippe Parreno, Claire Fontaine, Josephine Pryde and Danh Vo.
