La Tendenza, Architectures italiennes 1965-1985 par centrepompidou
The first retrospective exhibition in France devoted to one of the founding movements of post-war architecture, from Italy, “La Tendenza, Italian Architectures, 1965-1985″ presents a selection of over 250 drawings, models, photographs, paintings and films, as well as a rich documentation. The exhibition traces the highlights of the movement led by Aldo Rossi. Rejecting the notions of avant-garde and Utopia to initiate a political and critical architecture tuned into reality, La Tendenza offers a new approach to the architectural project founded on a renewal of drawing and the image.

Multiversités créatives : Entretien avec Achim… par centrepompidou

Beauté animale : L'Ours blanc de Pompon voyage par Rmn-Grand_Palais
Ever since the Renaissance, artists and naturalists have observed animals closely and represented them as accurately as they could. Nevertheless, naturalism ends where the norm and morality begin: various ethical and aesthetic criteria were established which influenced the artists’ point of view. There is extraordinary variety in the ways the same animal is represented. They reveal our fascination and curiosity for a world whose diversity is far from fully explored. Through a set of major works, the exhibition looks at the relationships that artists, often great painters and sculptors, have developed with animals.
This exhibition presents the story of two personalities, Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs (creative director of Louis Vuitton), and highlights their contributions to the world of fashion. How did they know to innovate and advance an entire industry? How did these two men, with their own language, appropriate the phenomena and cultural codes in order to write the history of fashion?
