Art and Advertising conference cancelled

A conference by Agnès Ghenassia,

The traditional pattern is that art creates and the applied arts, of which advertising is a part, follow. But history shows that many overlaps make this received idea more complex and that artists have also sometimes used the language of advertisers.
From the Toulouse-Lautrec posters, which have acquired the status of a work of art, to the most recent misappropriation of iconic works by brands, the relations between art and advertising are rich in exchanges and reciprocal contaminations that will feed our thinking.

The conference of Tuesday the 19th of January 2021 at 10:30 am has been cancelled

Reflecting on the art and avant-garde look that Victor Vasarely focused on the role of the artist in the twentieth century, the Foundation was created to popularize art without cultural or social discrimination: an art for all; accessible to everyone.
Avant-garde architecture, the Foundation is thought of as a gigantic lumino-kinetic sculpture where the optical animations of the facade prefigure the kinetic games of the 42 monumental integrations that we discover inside the building.
The most famous works of Victor Vasarely are presented to the Foundation in the form of monumental works allowing the visitor to appreciate the outcome to which Vasarely brings geometric abstract painting under the name of kinetic art. Vasarely was one of the promoters of this movement, as well as his son Yvaral, visual artist and graphic designer. The Foundation presents their works, as well as those of contemporary artists who work on the interactions between the work and the public in temporary exhibitions.

In creating his architectural center in 1976, Victor Vasarely made a gesture of exceptional significance and generosity. This French artist of Hungarian origin (Pécs 1906 – Paris 1997), internationally recognized as the father of Op Art, a specialist in optical and kinetic effects, as well as a brilliant advertising illustrator, created in Aix-en-Provence “La Cité polychrome of happiness “, bringing together visual artists, architects and urban planners, and wished to promote a social art accessible to all.
