Conference: Dance and the plastic arts

A conference by Agnès Ghenassia,

Modernity gave birth to “free dance”, which profoundly changed for painters and sculptors the way of representing the body. Common research on movement; light and sound then brought together choreographers and visual artists around the 1950s. Finally, the common desire to bring art closer to life brings together contemporary dance and the art of performance. Contemporary designers feed off these mutual influences.

Compagnie Pierre de Lune

Chorégraphie Katia Pierre

Carte blanche to the Pierre de Lune Choreographic Group made up of young dancers from the Katia Pierre dance school (Pays d’Arles). The choreographer continues her creative process dedicated specifically to museum space, these young artists are shaking up the idea of ​​dance, just as dance renews the approach we have of the museum. Art is decompartmentalised in favor of transversality offering a space conducive to performance. This represents an essential aspect of the artistic process of the Company, the questions it raises concern duration and ephemerality, we also glimpse the role of the document and the function of memory …

Intérieur de La Fondation VasarelyVasarely Foundation,  hall n°5

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.
