Plastic arts and music conference

A conference by Agnès Ghenassia,

Plastic arts and music

With the representation of musicians and instruments, music was initially a formal theme for painters. At the start of the 20th century, it was by relying on music that the pioneers of abstraction took the plunge, and simultaneously, avant-garde composers renewed their language through the confrontation with these painters, highlighting numerous correspondences structural. From the 1950s, it was an open-ended vision of art that the artists of the Fluxus movement imposes, organizing both plastic and musical events, and the very writing of musical scores evolves into “graphic scores”. But above all, they are stories of families and friendships, they are plastic artists and musicians. Musicians painters who have opened up an infinite field of renewal and invention, with a common goal: the expression of emotions.

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.
