Latin Americans in Paris

Latin Americans in Paris juxtaposes works by artists Martha Boto, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Julio Le Parc, Gregorio Vardanega, and others who moved to the French capital in the mid-20th century with pieces by Europeans with whom they had historical or aesthetic connections, such as Josef Albers, Niki de Saint Phalle, Jean Tinguely, and Victor Vasarely. All artists represented were pioneers of kinetic art, which incorporates perceptible movement, thereby engaging the viewer directly. The exhibition explores how many of these artists sought to reach out even further to audiences by making their work not just figuratively but also literally accessible, creating multiples of their pieces and selling them at affordable prices.
