Centre Pompidou to partner with STH BNK By Beulah
Globally-revered Centre Pompidou to contribute to the invention of an innovative cultural centre for young people
In a move that will redefine art and culture for young people within Australia, France’s globally-revered art and culture institution, Centre Pompidou, will join forces to invent a unique venue in Melbourne for art lovers from 0 to 18 and beyond, as part of the highly ambitious vertical city, STH BNK By Beulah.
A highly distinguished Paris landmark designed by Renzo Piano and the late Richard Rogers, Centre Pompidou is an architectural icon of the 20th century due to its adaptable, colourful and provocative design; it is also one of the most frequented cultural monuments in the world with more than three million visits a year pre-pandemic.
Following a long assessment by Beulah of some of the world’s most recognised art institutions, Centre Pompidou was chosen as its cultural partner due to a shared vision of creating cultural programs for audiences – particularly young ones – all over the world, while remaining deeply rooted in the city and being open to innovation.
