To celebrate the 110th anniversary of the birth of Victor Vasarely as well as the 40th birthday of the Fondation Vasarely, an exhibition called “MultipliCité”, devoted to the artist, will be held from 2 June to 2 October 2016.
“MultipliCité” is a three-part exhibition presented by the Musée Vouland in Avignon, the Château de Gordes and the Fondation Vasarely in Aix-en-Provence. The Musée Vouland will be presenting an exhibition called “En mouvement”; the Château de Gorde, “L’Alphabet plastique”; and finally “L’Art pour tous” in the Centre Architectonique that hosts the Fondation Vasarely in Aix-en-Provence. The exhibition is being organised in partnership with the Fondation Vasarely, the Fondation Vouland, the Musée de Gordes, the Pécs Museum in Hungary (from where the artist originates) and finally the Budapest Museum.
Born in 1906, Vasarely produced unique and socially-aware work while living through the 20th century’s events. A major figure in Kinetic Art and Optic (Op) Art, he continually asserted art’s social dimension, following in the trail of the Bauhaus.
