Franz West: major upcoming retrospective
September 2018
Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris

In 2018, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris will present the first posthumous retrospective of the work of Franz West. Curated by Christine Macel, Chief Curator at the Centre Georges Pompidou and Mark Godfrey, Senior Curator at Tate Modern, the exhibition will span West's influential career and draws on loans of major works from institutions including the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Ludwig Museum in Cologne. On view will be works dating from the 1970s onwards, including early drawings and works on paper that have rarely been presented publicly, the papier mâché sculptures of the 1980s, large-scale installations created in the 1990s, and the open-air sculptures of the 2000s. The exhibition will open in September 2018.
