As part of its collaboration with the Musée national d’Art moderne – Centre Pompidou, the Fondation Vasarely presents a selection of some twenty works by artists from South America and Eastern Europe.
It has sometimes been said that optic-kinetic art in France was essentially the result of the arrival in Paris of young South American artists who came to meet a Hungarian, Victor Vasarely. The hypothesis, if a little caricatured, is nevertheless part truth. In fact, Paris was a meeting place for artists who were concerned with questions of dynamism, light and more generally vision, coming from Eastern Europe and South American artists.
The “South-East” exhibition is built around this theme. A selection of about twenty works will allow the public of the Vasarely Foundation to measure the richness of the crossing of these works from the South and the East.
The exhibition will include works by:
Carmelo Arden Quin, Antonio Asis, Henryk Berlewi, Martha Boto, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Horacio García Rossi, Julije Knifer, Stanislav Kolibál, Gyula Kosice, Piotr Kowalski, Juan Melé, Vera Molnár, István Nádler, Nicolas Schöffer, Jesús Rafael Soto, Henryk Stazewski, Victor Vasarely and Jan Ziemski.
