Centre Pompidou, Paris, turns 40 with a free weekend - February 4 and 5

Centre Pompidou or Beaubourg as it's know in Paris turns 40 this year and to celebrate the museum is offering a free weekend February 4 and 5.
Apart from an array of special events and performances there is the opportunity to see the amazing Cy Twombly show which runs until April 24.
Organized around three major cycles – Nine Discourses on Commodus (1963), Fifty Days at Iliam (1978) and Coronation of Sesostris (2000) – this retrospective covers the artist’s entire career in a chronological circuit of some 140 paintings, sculptures, drawings and photographs, providing a clear picture of an extraordinarily rich body of work which is both intellectual and sensual. The selection includes many of Twombly’s iconic works, several of them never previously exhibited in France.
