Le Centre Pompidou on the move
Art & Business | At the head of the Centre Pompidou since 2015, Serge Lasvignes has adopted a series of new projects for the French institution. His objective : develop the museum’s international position and continue its swing towards the cultural business model.
In dialogue with Chinese and Korean authorities, Serge Lasvignes is drawing up the blueprints for the first Centre Pompidou outside Europe, in the form of a pop-up - designed to spread the international aura of the institutional brand through the creation of influential posts in South Asia, in the line with the opening of the Centre Pompidou-Malaga. In parallel with that infiltration strategy, the new director intends to see through the process of decentralization within France, which has had mitigated results under the prior directorship - with entries at the Centre Pompidou-Metz in continual decline and the abandonment of the Musée-mobile program in 2013 due to budgetary constraints. Moreover, the 2016 exhibition program reveals as much a commercial logic as it dœs a measured approach to risk, with illustrious monograph-blockbusters such as Magritte, Anselm Kiefer and Cy Twombly... in addition to timely historical revivals, like the Beat Generation.
