After the presentation of two outstanding exhibitions, The Permanent Revolution in 2019 and South-East, Constructivism as a Legacy / Eastern Europe and South America, in 2020-21, the collaboration initiated between the Fondation Vasarely and the Centre Pompidou continues this year with the exhibition Modernités cosmiques. It will be held from June 18 to October 16, 2022, at the Architectonic Centre, Fondation Vasarely in Aix-en-Provence.
This event will be an opportunity to see masterpieces of modernity from the collections of the Musée national d’art moderne – Centre Pompidou, and the works of artists who share a common source of inspiration: the cosmos and the infinitely large.
This exhibition will show the interest of avant-garde artists in sidereal observation, which is known to be present in the work of Victor Vasarely, and its persistence in current artistic creation. 
The exhibition weaves the links between the cosmic imagination and artistic modernity by presenting works from different aesthetics and periods from the 1920s to the present day. From Frantisek KUPKA, to Antoine PEVSNER, via Jean DEWASNE, BRASSAI, Lucio FONTANA, Evariste RICHER, Max ERNST, Alain JACQUET… these artists reveal in their perception and interpretation of the stars and the cosmos. 
Its curator, Michel Gauthier, curator at the Musée national d’art moderne – Centre Pompidou, offers here, in a selection of twenty-four works and twenty artists, a fascinating reading of modern and contemporary art through the cosmic prism.
