Inspirock Rating:
3.6/5 based on 220 reviews on the web
Together with architects John Sonnier and Dominique Ronsseray, Victor Vasarely established Foundation Vasarely in 1976. The trio wanted to promote "art for all" and of the "city of tomorrow." Study 42 large works of art, each 6 by 8 m (20 ft by 26 ft.) Vasarely's seven "cells" are hexagonal rooms that measure 14 m (46 ft) across and 11 m (36 ft) high. The French National Commission named the foundation a historic monument almost 40 years later.

  • It is a sad sight to see both the building and the art works in such a bad shape. Some of the works are made up of tiles, with parts actually missing! The floors, the walls, the sealing, the furniture...  read more »

  • It is a Museum of modern art is a bit overrated. The gigantic work certainly have multiple interpretations, all is aesthetic, there you feel stifled in a building that is very average and well air-conditioned. We saw more subversive as art also... I recommend to go with your family, it's more interesting for children than for adults.

  • We visited today with two teenage boys. Big succes. Everyone loved this small expo.Yes, the state of the building needs some serious renovation they are working on technical nstallations i think. This Does Not take away from the huge impact and significance of this Temple of futurist vision. Happy i bought a book at the shop.
  • Unique in the world, the building was built around the art work of Vazarely with many giant pieces of art.
  • Slightly run-down but nonetheless an amazingly good modern art museum. Fab building too!
  • Wonderful, light-filled exhibition halls for the continuous ceiling carpets, poster, textures in the exhibition. There are a total of 8 Hall areas to commit with a central hall with seating for painters. Liked it very us - because his exhibits are here very well.
