The Centre Pompidou-Metz is a museum of modern and contemporary arts located in Metz, France. It is a branch of Pompidou arts centre of Paris, and features semi-permanent and temporary exhibitions from the large collection of the French National Museum of Modern Art. The Monument was designed by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban. The Centre Pompidou-Metz is a large hexagon structured round a central spire reaching 77 m (253 ft) and possesses three rectangular galleries weaving through the building at different levels. The roof is the major achievement of the building: a 90 m (300 ft) wide hexagon echoing the building’s floor map. The entire wooden structure is covered with a white fibreglass membrane and a coating of teflon, which has the distinction of being self-cleaning, protect from direct sunlight while providing a transparent at night. And last, but not least, the avant-garde roof architecture has inspired quite a few nicknames for the bulding: the most prominent among them ‘Smurf House’ and ‘Chinese Hat’.
The “Glam!” exhibition in the “Lentos” Kunstmuseum Linz celebrates fashion, music and design of the early 1970s. Artists such as David Bowie, Brian Eno, and Jack Goldstein are featured with their album covers, photographs, films, posters and original costumes. The so-called glam rock era challenged the divsion of music into a serious and an entertaining branch and established futuristic, androgynous aesthetics. The Fine Arts department is covered as well with artists such as Gilbert & George, Nan Goldin, Cindy Sherman and Richard Hamilton.

Designing Modern Women 1890–1990

This is a suggestion for you US folks. And as I won’t make it to New York in the near future, I really envy you for that great exhibition. The MoMA showcases the works of great female artists and designers, that were denied their place in art and design history. Quite often their works and fields of interest were considered dispensable and secondary. Even worse, some pieces were rejected simply for the reason that the creator had been a woman.
The exhibition wants to draw attention to great, partly forgotten female artists and their works. Among them the performances by Loïe Fuller, April Greiman’s computer-generated graphics, a kitchen design by Charlotte Perriand with Le Corbusier. Furthermore furniture and designs by Lilly Reich, Eileen Gray, Eva Zeisel, Ray Eames, Lella Vignelli, and Denise Scott Brown; textiles by Anni Albers and Eszter Haraszty; ceramics by Lucy Rie and concert posters by Bonnie Maclean. And last, but not least, hardly ever shown posters and graphic material of the punk era. To get a picture, check out this homepage: Photos of the exhibiton
