The opening of the Crozatier Museum’s flagship exhibition “Across the fields, modernity and rurality in the collection of the Centre Pompidou” took place on Friday evening.

An exceptional exhibition awaits the public at the Crozatier Museum, that of the works loaned by the Centre Pompidou: it explores the world of rurality through the eyes of 20th century painters and photographers in France and Europe.

“Meeting new audiences”

The opening brought together lovers of modern and contemporary art with elected officials, patrons and Charlotte Bruyerre, the deputy general director of the Centre Pompidou. “This exhibition is an important lever for awareness, well beyond the territory,” declared the president of the Agglomeration of Puy-en-Velay, Michel Joubert, in the preamble.
“Rurality is a subject that speaks to us,” noted Michel Chapuis, the mayor of Puy-en-Velay, emphasizing the richness of this exhibition in which works by Georges Braque, Joan Mitchell, Marc Chagall, Raoul Dufy, Vassily Kandinsky and Kasimir Malevitch are presented…
Representing the Region, Caroline Barre insisted on the “national scope” of the exhibition, culture being “a dynamic and a component of the attractiveness of our territories, creating social ties”.
Charlotte Bruyerre recalled that “this exhibition is part of partnerships established over several years”, praising the work of the director of the Crozatier museum, Maud Leyoudec and her teams. The Centre Pompidou lends around six thousand works each year, mainly on the national territory. “Exhibiting in rural areas allows us to meet new audiences. It is very important for us”, she continued.
The Centre Pompidou will close for renovation from next year: “The exhibition presented here is a very good example of the type of partnerships that we wish to establish which consoles us for our upcoming closure in Paris,” she concluded before giving the floor to the exhibition curators to present the exhibition.
The exhibition is open every day during the summer holidays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. non-stop.
