The Vasarely Foundation: 50 years of future

Aix-en-Provence - Art moderne / contemporain - From 10/11/2021 to 08/05/2022, daily between 10 am and 6 pm.

It recounts Victor Vasarely's first considerations on its great design, from the written formulation of 1966, "My Foundation Project", as well as the phases of a cultural project that would be totally one-of-a-kind.

"Art will be a common treasure or it will not be" presents, through a rich collection of archive documents, original works, texts and photos, the genesis of the creation of the Aix-en-Provence Architectonic Centre, inaugurated in 1976, a venue for centre staging the visual language for large-scale housing complexes and the Polychrome City of Happiness.
