From  march 26th to May 10th, 2023 : Exhibition SPACE/ LIGHT / REFECTION.

Miriam Prantl is considered one of the most influential light artists in Austria, and her work is currently exhibited in numerous museums, institutions and public spaces. Her professional approach to light and its interaction with space and the observer is one of the unique features of her artistic work. In his installations, material space dissolves into an immaterial space of sensory experience, where colour and light merge to form a moment of perception of an ultimately immaterial environment.
Stefan Faas is a German metal sculptor whose works focus on the effect of the viewer’s reflection in his sculptures. The highly polished and reflective steel allows the viewer’s space to be expanded by an almost fictitious dimension of the self, in which the viewer becomes part of the sculpture. The tension comes from the titles, which are based on antiquity, as well as from the formal realisation, which is oriented on it. The technical and material realization of Stefan Faas’ sculptures communicates an approach that is defined as contemporary in art.
This exhibition offers a unique opportunity to discover exceptional works by two outstanding artists in their field, who complement each other perfectly to create a unique artistic experience. We look forward to welcoming you to the Vasarely Foundation for this exceptional exhibition, which promises to be an unforgettable experience for all visitors.

Inaugurated in 1976, the architectonic center of Aix-en-Provence reflects the essence of Vasarely’s mission. Designed as a place of exchange, experiments and new encounters, this multi-disciplinary “laboratory” would bring together plastic arts, architecture, new technologies, chemistry, and other disciplines. The ““polychromatic city of happiness” was born.

Designed by Vasarely in collaboration with architects Jean Sonnier, Dominique Ronsseray and Claude Pradel-Lebar, the 5,000 sq. meter building is an example of the very same urban design which the Foundation seeks to promote.

Sixteen hexagon-based modules are embedded in a gigantic building using technology and materials endorsed by modern art movements. The honeycomb structure presents various models of the integration of plastic arts and architecture, using optical art as its common ground.
