New Centre Pompidou museum to open in Shanghai


Last month, during his visit to China, the French President Emmanuel Macron announced the opening of a new satellite museum of the Centre Pompidou in Shanghai. 

"Cultural diplomacy is a great bridge between countries and a way to share the influence of our national collections" stated Françoise Nyssen, the French Minister of Culture.

The future Centre Pompidou - Shanghai West Bund is under construction, designed by architect David Chipperfield. It will accommodate more than 20 exhibitions and is due to open in spring 2019.


A map is published to present the current French national museums projects around the world: from Shanghai to Brussels and beyond.
