Though I’ve seen the outside of the Centre Georges Pompidou several times, I only recently looked inside.  It’s worth a visit.  Visiting modern art museums is thought provoking.  It raises the question of what defines a piece as an object of art.  Works like the “Antichamber of the private apartments of the Elysée Palace for President Georges Pompidou, 1974 / Aménagement de l’antichambre des appartements privés du palais de l’Elysée pour le Président Georges Pompidou, 1974” in the pictures are, to my eye, art.  Some other installations, a small minority, leave me scratching my head.  At a modern art museum, the line between “art” and left over building materials can be thin.
