If Cesar has been criticized a lot since the 50s, this fact demonstrates how our society was fascinated by his inventiveness and his ceaselessly renewed and reinvented art.
The sculptor was influenced by Picasso’s work during all his artistic life. Seeing his masterpieces, you’ll certainly feel a wave of madness which blows on its work, but we must say that the Beaubourg offers a very dynamic and original retrospective of the artist, far from the boredom of pompous great classics! Scraping, manipulating rags, compression or simply drawing, his extravagance makes us silent.
This retrospective will make you discover the biggest periods of Cesar’s art: Irons, Compression, Expansions and Human Imprints. I particularly recommend you to explore his original world with kids. What kind of art could be more spectacular for them than crushed cars, gigantic thumbs or piled garbage ?
The exhibition is a real parody about our society of mass consumption.
The Pompidou center of modern art abounds in original permanent exhibitions. You easily can stay there all day long with your kids. By the way, the artist Yaacov Agam is currently performing there with his exhibition of Elysee Palace’s private appartements. If you need a break between 2 exhibitions, there is a gigantic library : a kingdom of culture for your kids ! And for the lunch break, the restaurant ” Georges ” situated on the 6th floor will offer you besides his delicious card, a breathtaking view on Paris.
