The Centre Pompidou-Metz is France’s first major cultural decentralisation project. The Centre Pompidou has brought its model to the region, and offered its know-how and collections in a unique partnership with local government bodies, which not only provide the necessary funding but also guarantee independence of scientific and cultural choices. Respecting the values of the Centre Pompidou in its generosity, open to all publics and to all forms of current-day creation, the Centre Pompidou-Metz illustrates, through its relationship both to society and to culture, the renewal of the Centre Pompidou’s strategy refocused on its prime vocation, namely to form a platform of exchanges between French society and creation. The Centre Pompidou-Metz is neither a branch nor an annex of the Centre Pompidou but a sister institution, independent in its scientific and cultural choices, able to develop its own programme in the spirit of the Centre Pompidou, and relying on the latter’s know-how, network and notoriety. In conveying these values, it has an extraordinary advantage, that of being able to draw from the collections of the Centre Pompidou, Musée national d’art moderne, which, with its 65,000 works, boasts one of the world’s two finest collections in the field of modern and contemporary art, and the largest collection in Europe.
