3.7
#6 of 15 in Museums in Aix-en-Provence
Together with architects John Sonnier and Dominique Ronsseray, Victor Vasarely established Fondation Vasarely in 1976. The trio wanted to promote "art for all" and of the "city of tomorrow." Study 42 large works of art, each 6 by 8 m (20 ft by 26 ft.) Vasarely's seven "cells" are hexagonal rooms that measure 14 m (46 ft) across and 11 m (36 ft) high. The French National Commission named the foundation a historic monument almost 40 years later.

  • Unconditional recommendation in Aix-en-Provence- one should not be deterred by the negative comments. Alone the building from the outside is an event! And the exhibition inside shows huge large-scale objects by Vaserely. Wonderful color fireworks and a journey into the Op-Art-Art, which is not possible anywhere in the world. The staff is great! And also the shop is well sorted. absolute recommendation!
  • Never heard of Vasarely. If you're a graphic designer, this is a place for you. Before computers, this guy was doing your illustrator grids, color experimentation and gradients.
