15.01.2018Centre Pompidou in Shanghai

During his state visit to China last week, French president Emmanuel Macron reconfirmed France’s agreement with the Chinese authorities to establishing a new Centre Pompidou in Shanghai. A protocol between the Pompidou and the West Bund Group, was signed last year and the centre is to be housed in the West Bund Art Museum, currently under construction. Previously described by the Centre Pompidou as “the most important long-term cultural exchange project” between France and China, the museum is scheduled to open to the public in early 2019.
