OMA & Jason Long to Design Centre Pompidou x Jersey City
Jersey City Mayor Mr Steven M Fulop and the Centre Pompidou joined New Jersey Governor r Phil Murphy to announce an international partnership initiating the Centre Pompidou × Jersey City project, the Centre Pompidou’s first and only North American partnership exclusively selected with the City of Jersey City. This unique cultural cooperation between France and the United States of America will launch a strong partnership aiming to reinvent, develop and activate Jersey City Journal Square’s iconic Pathside Building, located adjacent to the PATH in the New York Metropolitan area’s most thriving city, under the design leadership of architects OMA & Jason Long.
Scheduled to open in early 2024, the Centre Pompidou × Jersey City museum will become an all-new leading international cultural hub located at the heart of historic Journal Square, serving as a dynamic destination for residents and attracting visitors from all over the region, reflecting the energy and diversity of Jersey City’s burgeoning arts community.
The Centre Pompidou will provide its expertise to create an ambitious program emphasizing education via hands-on artistic and cultural experiences, with a community component central to Jersey City’s ambitious and inclusive vision for the future, making the Centre Pompidou × Jersey City a promising multidisciplinary art laboratory for cultural and educational programming.
With the addition of exclusive exhibitions created with the modern and contemporary art masterpieces from the Paris Centre Pompidou’s collection, as well as tailor-made and diversified events at the crossroads of all disciplines, the Centre Pompidou × Jersey City’s cultural agenda (to be revealed at a later date) will offer an effervescent fusion of art and ideas.
