Notions of space, vision and light run through the abstract art of the 20th century and interest many world renowned contemporary artists who, by putting vibration along with the spectator’s perception in the centre of their works, set up multiple resonances with optical and kinetic art.
In an unprecedented move, the whole of the Galeries nationales du Grand Palais, an area of about 3,700 square metres, has been made available for the exhibition, in order to present almost 150 artists, who contributed to the development of this approach over a hundred years or so.
Outstanding among them are Julio Le Parc, François Morellet, Gianni Colombo, Jesús Rafael Soto, Dan Flavin, Hans Haacke, James Turrell, Yayoi Kusama, Victor Vasarely, Kenneth Noland, Jean Tinguely, Yaacov Agam, Tony Conrad, Pol Bury, Alexander Calder, Marcel Duchamp, Gerhard von Graevenitz, Christian Megert, Nicolas Schöffer, Bridget Riley, Dan Graham, Takis, Gregorio Vardanega, as group of artists such the GRAV (Group of visual Arts research), and the group Zero.
