Pompidou opens offshoot in Brussels

At the weekend, over 20,000 people flocked to the opening of the Kanal – Centre Pompidou, an offshoot of Paris’s iconic art museum, housed in a vast warehouse in Brussels.
The brand new Kanal-Centre Pompidou modern art museum, built in a former Citroën warehouse, an imposing 38,000-square-metre ‘glass cathedral’ Art Deco building, is currently showing hundreds of works on loan from the Pompidou.

The new museum will host several exhibitions until June next year, mixing visual arts, design, architecture and major installations and creations by Brussels-based artists, as well as performing arts. After renovations, the space will house a permanent museum of modern and contemporary art, set to open in 2022.
Over the next ten years, Kanal-Centre Pompidou will be run as a partnership between the Pompidou Centre, the Bruxelles-Capital region and the Kanal Foundation.

This is the second time the Pompidou centre has launched a museum outside France’s borders. The first opened in Malaga in Spain in 2015; another is planned in Shanghai, China in 2019.
