Pompidou To Pop Up In Shanghai

Officials at the Centre Pompidou have confirmed that the Paris museum is expanding its empire with plans to open an offshoot branch in Shanghai. More than 20 exhibitions drawn from the holdings of the Beaubourg Gallery will be shown in the new outpost, called Le Centre Pompidou Shanghai (West Bund), which is based in a wing of the new 25,000 sq. m West Bund Art Museum designed by the UK architect David Chipperfield. The museum is due to open late 2018 while the new Pompidou satellite will launch early 2019.
