"In a Musicircus , it is permissible to draw together all forms and types of music that are usually separated from one another. "

It is this jubilant spirit, expressed by John Cage on the occasion of a performance he realized in 1967, that inspired the Centre Pompidou-Metz to inaugurate the Musicircus program. Continuing in this path, this new proposal emphasizes forty “flagship” works from the collection of the Centre Pompidou, Musée National d'Art Moderne. Armed with a new thematic focus, the inquiry explores the practice of famous artists — from amateur musicians ( Wassily Kandinsky played the violin ) to music lovers ( Sol LeWitt possessed hundreds of records) —whose work was influenced by music.
