The verdict is here, Centre Pompidou is reopening on July 1, 2020. Covering 75,000sqm and welcoming 3.27 million visitors every year, the cultural monster in Paris is back.

As Paris museums will gradually reopen from mid-June,Centre Pompidou will come back on July 1, 2020. The museum presents the first contemporary and modern art collection in Europe and is a true giant in the Parisian cultural life with its 75,000sqm premise.

If the reopening date to the public is set on July 1, patrons and members of the Parisian museum will enjoy an early opening from June 26th, 2020.

Before confirming the reopening date, Centre Pompidou already unveiled a new calendar of its exhibitions wishing to give pride of place to "an adjournment logic that would support performing artists [...] subject to decisions made by the competent authorities for the reopening of the major cultural places and conditions to work".

We also learn that the big retrospective devoted to Christo - expected to open right before lockdown - will open as soon as the museum reopens and until October 19, 2020. 
As for the Matisse exhibition, said to debut on May 13th, it is postponed to October 21, 2020.

In the "Galerie 3", the "Phase Shifting Index" exhibition by Jeremy Shaw currently running will be extended up to July 27, 2020. It will be followed by an exhibition devoted to Martin Barré starting October 14, 2020.

As for performing arts, the debate of ideas and movies, Centre Pompidou says they have been "thinking about a program for September and deciding to face new issues set by the current crisis to all forms of creation".
