Lumière and movement.
Julio Le Parc is an Argentina-born artist who focuses on both modern op art and kinetic art. Le Parc attended the School of Fine Arts in Argentina. A founding member of Groupe de Recherche d’Art Visuel and award-winning artworks, he is a significant figure in Argentinean modern art.
The artist’s first large-scale monographic exhibition in France. Le Parc’s installations in Palais de Toyko’s entrance hall, features a selection of landmark works ranging from the 1950s to today. The exhibition also presents the opportunity to move beyond the seductive appearance of Julio Le Parc’s work, in order to confront his more political, even utopic, works. The layout of the exhibition plays on the contrast between dark and bright areas, with certain works floating in space: a sensory experience combining light, energy and movement with a message of the relationship between the work and the spectator.
