The Shape of Time Hightlights of The Centre Pompidou Collection, Vol 1
Editor's Description

The collection of the musée national d’art moderne, Centre Pompidou, comprises more than 100,000 works of art dating from 1905 to the present.

“The Shape of Time” is the first of three thematic selections of major works from that collection that are to be shown at the West Bund Museum over a period of five years.

In The Shape of Time: Remarks on the History of Things, George Kubler suggests that “the aim of the historian, regardless of his specialty in erudition, is to portray time”. Yet there is more than one way of representing time. The forms time takes are cultural, differing from one region of the globe to another and from one moment and circumstance to the next.
