The Centre Pompidou is staging an original exhibition presenting the ties uniting prehistory with modern and contemporary art.

How, in the great period of crisis called «modernity», first artists, then society as a whole, felt drawn to their «origins» and how a fantasy vision was built up of «what preceded History». It reveals that some of the most important artists of the 20th and 21st century were haunted by the question of «prehistory»: Picasso, Miró but also Cézanne, Klee, Giacometti, Ernst, Beuys, Klein, Dubuffet, Louise Bourgeois, Marguerite Duras, Robert Smithson, and, among our contemporaries, Giuseppe Penone, Miquel Barceló, Marguerite Humeau, Pierre Huyghe, Dove Allouche, and others.
