The Centre Pompidou in Paris will expand its international reach with a new outpost in Jersey City, New Jersey. According to a report by the New York Times, the new museum, which will be located in a four-story, 100-year-old industrial building in the Journal Square district, is set to open in 2024 with a five-year contract between the city and the French institution. The Pompidou plans to show works from its collection in the new Jersey City museum amid the forthcoming years-long restoration effort and impending temporary closure of its Paris venue. The new outpost, known as Centre Pompidou x Jersey City, will also prioritize programming like talks, performances, screenings, and more.
Called Centre Pompidou x Jersey City, the new satellite would have access to Europe’s largest collection of contemporary art and could feature a robust program of talks, performances, and screenings. The move adds to efforts by the institution to expand its global reach before its French flagship—designed by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers and opened in 1977—closes down for four years beginning in 2023 for a major $243 million restoration. In recent years, it has unveiled new locations in Málaga, Spain; Brussels; and Shanghai.
