About the Museum

The 1977 opening of this most progressive of venues reaffirmed France’s commitment to the future of contemporary art. The startling freshness of the architecture reflects one of the world’s most sophisticated visions, interdisciplinary to the core. Here, the vitality of art’s forward edges unfold within the context of theatre, music, cinema, literature and the spoken word. The collection – Europe’s largest of Modern and contemporary art, with more than 60,000 works – refreshingly celebrates countless giants of the avant-garde, far beyond the usual suspects. Nevertheless, the many masterpieces by artists including Wassily Kandinsky, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró and Pablo Picasso still reign supreme.
