Foundation Vasarely, Aix-en-Provence

(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.

  • For the third time, we visited, in the company of friends, the Foundation, the works are limited both in number and quality, work takes a lot of space and especially the price of the admission ticket is much too high (value to review)

  • Winter Sunday morning we were the only ones in the Foundation. The works are impressive by their size and Vasarely brand but the general State of the collection and the building (under renovation) tarnish the emotion that emerges in each cell. Hope that ongoing work give back to the Foundation the luster it deserves.

  • Vasarely we love, but the Foundation is in decrepitude, benches holes, and even of certain works pieces fell to the Earth! What a pity

  • Simple and interesting museum building! Very nice plateau where is placed this museum. Unfortunately it was under renovation when I went there.
  • 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!
  • A bit in the years to come, but the authentic feeling of the 70s comes to fruition. Probably, just (10.16) is being renovated. The Museum shop with great prints you can purchase is recommended.
