DESCRIPTION

For the first time, the famous Paris institution and its collections invade the Grimaldi Forum.EXTRA LARGE is conceived to display a cross-section of the Centre Pompidou collections through some of its most extravagantly sized artworks, including recent acquisitions and pieces never previously exhibited in Europe. A vertigo-inducing way for visitors to connect with some of the greatest artists of the 20th century.

This spectacular exhibition exploring the idea of extreme size includes particularly large works by Miró, Dubuffet, Matta, Soulages, Frank Stella, Sam Francis and Yan Pei Ming along with sculptures, installations and environments by Tinguely, Beuys, Boltanski, Buren and Alain Séchas and pieces by Sol Lewitt, Kapoor, Penone and Bill Viola. Masterpieces of modern creativity brought together in a deliberately norm-defying artistic concept.

This project is the result of close collaboration between the Centre Pompidou and the Grimaldi Forum Monaco.
