Christian boltanski centre pompidou exposition paris critique beaubourg 1 1 grid Christian Boltanski — Centre Pompidou Le Centre Pompidou organise autour de l’une des figures majeures de l’art contemporain français une exposition qui marie les paradoxes et cache, derrière l’absence de tout appareil critique, une tendance ludique assumée tout aussi paradoxale qui peut certes diviser mais n’en perd pas moins un certain souffle.

Through a pathway of some fifty works by Christian Boltanski, this vast presentation by one of the key figures of contemporary creation reveals the magnitude and ambition of an artist marked by his history and a half-century of questioning on the role and voice of the artist in our societies. Thirty-five years have passed since Christian Boltanski’s first exhibition at the Centre Pompidou. Designed by Boltanski himself as a vast journey into the heart of his work, this new exhibition is not so much a retrospective as a series of sequences marking the steps and transformations of his approach.
