This new circuit revisits the history of the Musée National d’Art Moderne's collections as we celebrate the bicentenary of the Musée des Artistes Vivants, of which it is one of the heirs. This "retrospective" of the museum's collections is laid out in some fifteen sections scattered through the modern circuit. Over 120 works, accompanied by an all-new documentary system, explore the identity of the Musée National d’Art Moderne and its predecessors from the 1920s to the opening of the Centre Pompidou.
