South-East, works by artists from South America and eastern Europe, a collection from the Pompidou Center

Aix-en-Provence - Divers arts - From 8 January 2021 to 31 January 2021

The Fondation Vasarely is presenting a selection of around 20 works by artists from South America and eastern Europe as part of its collaboration with the Pompidou Centre.

People sometimes say that op art in France mainly resulted from young South American artists coming to Paris to meet the Hungarian artist, Victor Vasarely. It may be a bit of a cliché but there's some truth to the idea. Paris was actually a meeting point for artists from eastern Europe and South America.

They explored questions involving dynamics, light and vision in general. The "South-East" exhibition is based on this theme. The selection of around 20 pieces is a chance for visitors to the Fondation Vasarely to grasp the rich interaction between works from the South and East. The exhibition will feature work by Carmelo Arden-Quin, Antonio Asis, Henryk Berlewi, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Marta Boto, Hugo Demarco, Horacio Garcia Rossi, Stefan Gierowski Gyula Kosice, Piotr Kowalski, Juan Melé, Vera Molnar, Istvàn Nàdler, Nicolas Schöffer, Jésus Rafael Soto, Victor Vasarely and Jan Ziemsky.

Commissioner: Michel Gauthier, Curator at the Musée national d'art moderne - Centre Georges Pompidou.
