Centre Pompidou Accélérations – Points de Rencontres (Meeting Points) Exhibition

The exhibition Points de Rencontres (Meeting Points), imagined by Frédéric Paul, curator of the contemporary collections at the Musée National d’Art Moderne (National Museum of Modern Art), exhibited works produced by artists in residency, alongside works from the Museum’s collection (Brassaï, Man Ray, Sonia Delaunay, Joseph Albers, Paul Klee, Marc Chagall, Jackson Pollock, and others). More than a hundred works from the Centre Pompidou’s collection were selected in relation to the first cycle’s theme: emotion. These works from the collection, whether modern or contemporary, provide a reference framework to the new works by Hubert Duprat, Lionel Estève, Alexandre Estrela, Agnès Geoffray, Jonathan Monk, Camila Oliveira-Fairclough, and Bruno Serralongue, artists born between 1957 and 1979 with multiple perspectives and fields of exploration.

The works produced as part of these residencies were acquired by the Centre Pompidou Accelerations endowment fund and offered as a donation to the Centre Pompidou to be incorporated into its collections, after approval by the Musée National d’Art Moderne‘s acquisition committee.
