Dear members,

Due to the changing health context and in order to comply with official guidelines, the Vasarely Foundation remains closed until further notice.
The current health situation also forces us to take a break. As a result, our next Art and Advertising conference by Agnès Ghenassia, scheduled for Tuesday October 10 at 10:30 a.m. at 6MIC in Aix-en-Provence, is canceled.

The friends of the Vasarely Foundation hope to be able to reprogram it in the coming months, as soon as sanitary conditions allow it.

We will inform you as soon as possible of the resumption of our activities and we hope to be able to see you very soon.

In the meantime take care of yourself!

The friends of the Vasarely Foundation

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.
