Pompidou on the Bund

“We have to have a dialogue. It doesn’t mean we could hang all the works we wanted to hang”


Serge Lasvignes, president of Centre Pompidou, discusses the opening last week of a sister venue in Shanghai. The 22,000 square metre museum features 100 works in its permanent exhibition, but Lasvignes admitted to the Financial Times that Chinese officials had vetoed some of the items the Paris-based Pompidou wanted to show as being too sensitive.
