Frédéric Migayrou curates Le Corbusier exhibition

16 April 2015

Le Corbusier exhibition Pompidou

The Centre Pompidou is to present a new retrospective, featuring three hundred works by Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, better know as Le Corbusier, opening on 29 April 2015. The exhibition and its accompanying catalogue has been curated by Frédéric Migayrou, Chair and Professor of Architecture at The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. 

Adopting a decidedly innovative approach, the Centre Pompidou takes a fresh look at the output of this major figure in modernity through the proportions of the human body, which Le Corbusier considered essential as a universal principle. For the architect, this 'measurement of man' defined all aspects of architecture and spatial composition.

The new approach presents every facet of the artist’s work through 300 paintings, sculptures, drawings, architectural drawings, models, objects, films, photographs and documents all illustrating the prolific output of Le Corbusier.

Commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of his death, this key exhibition aims to enlighten audiences on the breadth and complexity of Le Corbusier’s work, thinking and humanism.
