Is contemporary art really difficult to understand? Is the Pompidou Centre a closed and elitist place? Of course not. The square in front of the museum will welcome us and, once inside, we will explore the permanent collections. We will see masterpieces of Avant-gardes and contemporary art. A time when art met the daily life, the common object, the reality and it revolutionized techniques and perception. You will do, in short, a fascinating journey into the history of the artistic object.
Check out what we are going to do.

Between the Stravinsky Fountain and the Museum (on the right side of the Pompidou Center)
We will meet in front of the Stravinsky fountain, on the side of the museum and close to the entrance
We will check tickets and everyone needs and we will be ready to discover the roots of contemporary art at the 5th floor, exploring the amazing collection of modern painters and sculptors, artists like Duchamp, Picasso, Matisse, Chagall and other experimenters that founded the most important movements or artistic avant-gardes (Dada, Cubism, Fauvism, Abstractism and so on). We will then follow the evolution of arts and media during the 20th and 21st centuries, down to the 4th floor. Also, we will admire the building itself: an artwork that, like it or not, symbolizes today a period and a style, making the history (with controversial transformations) of a famous neighbourhood.

The tour of the Musee d'Orsay, followed the tour of the Pompidou the day before. Martina is very knowledgeable, an excellent communicator and enthusiastic, so much so that she extended the allotted time. I would recommend Martina as your guide.
Thank you, John! I had a wonderful time as well! See you next time in Paris!
