Some cities don’t have a best time to visit, there is always something interesting going on. If you are in Paris this winter and visiting Le Centre Pompidou, or popularly called Beaubourg, you have more reasons to be there then to see this amazing piece of architecture.
Le Centre Pompidou hosts at the beginning of 2009 many interesting exhibitions. One of the artists that exhibits his work at the time is Ron Arad. He is a well-known British industrial designer and an architect. Being one of the most outstanding contemporary designers, he is known by his expression with sinusoidal, elliptical and oval forms. To see a display of Ron Arad’s work exhibited at Centre Pompidou, go here. Open till March 16, 2009.
Except Ron Arad, you’ll be able to also see an exhibition of Ettore Sottsass’ work (Hommage a Ettore Sotsass). He was an Italian architect and designer that influenced a major shift in international design in the 20th century. He is best known for his Carlton room divider/shelving unit, “Casablanca” sideboard and “Valentine” typewriter. Open till March 31, 2009. Another great artist exhibiting at Centre Pompidou is Damian Ortega. A Latin American artist and one of the most prominent artists of the new Mexican generation. His work explores specific economic, aesthetic and cultural situations and in particular how regional culture affects commodity consumption. He is inspired by a wide range of mundane objects which are transformed into remarkable pieces of art, sculptures and mobiles. Exhibition open until February 9, 2009.
