René Magritte, The Treachery of Images (La Trahison des Images) at the Centre Pompidou in Paris
The Centre Pompidou is devoting a thematic exhibition to the work of the Belgian artist René Magritte.
This completely new exhibition reinterprets the entire work of the artist in the light of five “figures” to which Magritte made constant reference in his work: fire, shadows,curtains, words and the fragmented body.
Through an approach based on these themes, the exhibition reveals the artist’s thinking on questions of resemblance and realism, and highlights his works dealing with the deceptive representations of the world.The exhibition brings together Magritte’s paintings with images from antiquity, illustrating possible mythological narratives.
Open daily 11am-10pm. Closed Tuesdays
Public Transit: Rambouteau, Hôtel de Ville, Châtelet
