Victor Vasarely at the Centre Pompidou
The Centre Pompidou in Paris presents a major retrospective dedicated to Victor Vasarely. The exhibition is organised by the Centre Pompidou, Paris in collaboration with the Städel Museum, Frankfurt.
Vasarely. Sharing Forms is focused on the exploration of the "Vasarely continent" with three hundred works, objects and documents. A tour that is both chronological and theme-based, through all the facets of the rich and diverse work of the father of optical art and all the aspects of its production: paintings, sculptures, multiples, architectural integrations, advertising and early studies. Known as the ‘grandfather’ of Op art, the Hungarian painter Victor Vasarely was working with optical illusions as early as the 1930s. This show charts his rise to fame in the 1950s and his turn to Pop art in the ’60s, as well as his later visual explorations of the fourth dimension.
