The Foundation opens its three upstairs rooms to dedicate to the work of the “father of op art”
On this occasion, a room named ‘Lucien Arkas’ will be devoted to the exhibition of twelve works of this passionate collector by the work of Victor Vasarely.
A new course of visit and cultural mediation will allow visitors to discover or rediscover the plastic world of the master, since her debut as a graphic designer until the realization of his monumental integrations and his utopian project the “polychrome city of happiness”.
This didactic presentation, with nearly 200 works and original documents, in a suitable setting, integrated the basic elements of the project of the french artist of Hungarian origin (Pécs 1906 – Paris 1997).
This exhibition expected finds its place in a building classified as Historical Monuments since November 25, 2013 and restored in its entirety (2013-2018).
