A master of avant-garde
The "Vasarely, the sharing of forms" exhibition invites you to focus on innovative art from the twentieth century. The heir to the Bauhaus movement, Vasarely was very interested in the socialisation of various art forms, particularly through decorative arts and advertising. Media intelligence, the desire to invent an "alphabet of forms" and to disseminate it on a large scale, helped to create a legacy that continued through all media and art forms during the second half of the twentieth century. Follow the artist's route both thematically and chronologically to reveal a compelling picture of the century.
Book your tickets now for this original exhibition dedicated to one of the most influential artists of the second half of the 20th century. It's also a great way to immerse yourself in the fascinating world of the Pompidou Centre.
