Museum of Modern Art, Beaubourg

First Sunday of the month! My daughter dragged me out for a quick afternoon trip to Centre Pompidou, the Paris Museum of Modern Art. We thus stuck with a single floor, housing the contemporary art collections, and reserved the (older) modern art floor for another trip.

The collection is centred on female artists, along the theme of elles@centrepompidou, and I found the quality of the exhibit quite mixed, from the very good (as shown by those few pictures) to the uselessly grotesque (e.g., Orlan)… The good thing is that, despite this haphazard juxtaposition, my daughter found a wide range of pieces to her taste, including the very deep Passages III by Catherine Iglesias, Nathalie Elemento’s sculpture of a bookcase or Gloria Freedman’s rendering of a bow tension.

There was also a temporary exhibit of collages by Erró. While some had lost their power, other collages remained very meaningful despite their age.
