The Musee D'Art Moderne is quite a piece of work.

When Gustave Eiffel unveiled his revolutionary piece of architecture, Le Tour Eiffel, in 1889, it was received with mixed emotion. It was destined to change the skyline of Paris forever, and met with much resistance. Likewise, the architects of the Centre Pompidou had to contend with their share of detractors.

Critics refer to it as “the oil refinery in the centre of the city”. It’s like a building turned inside-out. All of the service elements comprised of brightly colored tubes, are on the outside. The yellow ducts conduct electricity, blue is for air-conditioning, green is for the water system, and red is for transport (elevators). This revolutionary cultural center is home to the Musee National d’Art Moderne. The museum was initially housed in the Palais de Tokyo, where it opened in 1947. It reopened in the Centre Pompidou in 1977 and occupies the 4th and 5th floors of the building.

The collection is said to contain about 59,000 works of art, but only a small portion of that is on display. Pieces rotate in and out, exhibits are constantly in flux, which in itself is a very modern concept for a museum. The collection mixes media, from painting and photography, to cinema, sculpture, new media and design art.

The museum is divided into two categories: art from 1905 until 1960, and art from 1960 to the present. Fine examples of the work of Picasso, Matisse, Braque, Miro, Kandinsky and Klee, among others, chart the development of the modern art styles.

Warhol, Oldenburg, Jasper Johns and Frank Stella lead us through the mid-20th century. There are video exhibits, mixed media, and a screening room with access to visual and audio recordings of many artists.

If you are of the opinion that Paris is all about antiquity, the Centre Pompidou will shake you out of your stupor. The architects, Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano have created a new hang in an old neighborhood, the Beaubourg.

Comment's author: ptmheriea03/29/07 05:15:00 PM首先如果想要認真討論這個問題的話
請先定義 現代人類面對的環境
對於他們而言 努力堆積脂肪蛋白質等等慾望本能
既沒有失效 同時也是確實發揮演化上預期的作用

這些慾望依然存在 也沒有改變
哪裡有 失效 只不過環境變了 導致過猶不及的反效果

但是幾百萬年來 也從來沒有哪種人/類人猿
是 單獨 活在野外的
依賴群體與文化教育 本來就是人類的演化之道
如果把我丟在部落裡 我想我應該學得會生活

但是反過來說 難道現代人沒有受到演化的驅力嗎
我想未必 其實水泥叢林裡也不好混呀

如果我google一下 就會有美女送到我面前
我可能比較高興點 .
