Major avant-garde fanatics are invited to discover art movement of the 20th century at the Pompidou Centre in Paris.

Art is everywhere but it can take various forms:

There are also several degrees: from traditional to uber contemporary – and almost extreme.

Chapman Brothers are probably at the top of the scale, with rather disturbing artworks.

…From Marcel Duchamp’s first ready-made – the famous “porte-bouteille” (bottle rack) of 1914 – to Miró’s sculptures of the late Sixties, the exhibition looks back over the various stages of the Surrealists’ daring stance in sculpture through the use of everyday objects… Source

Coffee shops walls are becoming ephemeral art galleries for local and emerging artists.

But Pompidou – also called Beaubourg – is doing something very innovative in order to attract more visitors liking the early stages of abstract creations and Dada movement as well as Man Ray’s unique outstanding objects.

Art is becoming a real subject of serious investment. Prices can go up and down, there are constant interests because people are looking for something safe to buy and eventual margin when it comes to sell it in the near future. Some art collectors and dealers (such as Gagosian and Saatchi) are aware of what is actually trending – slightly similar to property management consultants.

A lot of experts usually give the following advice: “don’t buy what you like, buy what you dislike” – meaning that your tastes can be different from others and therefore, it is important to step back and think as a potential buyer who would certainly purchase that particular work. Gallerists are usually playing that game.

To be clearer, if a well-known gallery/museum buys a big work by a famous artist, this can boost the actual price, simply because the name of the owner becomes a reference in the artworld.

Modern art is successful throughout generations. Certainly because people are more open minded and their horizon is wider as before, maybe due to the fact that internet is accessible to everyone.

White walls are so 1990s…now the 21st century is all about visual presence and instant images  – Instagram being a good example. Social media is giving this opportunity of sharing with other “connected” friends.

Going to Paris to visit Le Louvre, Le Palais de Tokyo or the iconic Centre Pompidou will be mind blowing.

This can be an experience of a lifetime, as people like to say, because this display will run from 30th October 2013 until 3rd March 2014. Dedicated shows are happening in Paris, in the same way to the ones taking place at Tate Modern in London.

What about a combined Paris-London event,  giving each visitor a VIP feel when holding a limited edition ticket for exclusive access?!
