Movies are unquestionably one of the cutting-edge media in 20th-century artistic production, a discipline that has contributed more than any other to fashioning the visual culture of our contemporaries and of the artists of our day and age. The Center Pompidou continues its policy of publicizing trail-blazing references to cinematographic culture by presenting the exhibition Hitchcock and Art which first went on show in the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and whose Paris debut is marked by an adaptation and some significant additions, primarily by the arrival of works from the collections held in the Musee' National d'Art Moderne. Keeping faith with the Centre's multidisciplinary vocation of exploring and valorizing relationships between the different fields of modern and contemporary artistic creation, the exhibition aims at establishing a dialogue and revealing correlations between a leading, complex and universally known opus of cinematography work on the one hand and artistic movements on the other, from Romanticism to Surrealism, as well as architecture or graphic design, which left such a profound mark as they nourished Alfred Hitchcock's imagery and aesthetic. Hitchcock and Art provides the Centre with a chance to offer the public not only the exhibition, but also Hitchcock's complete repertoire of films.
