Foundation Vasarely, Aix-en-Provence
(3.7/5 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.

  • I knew the Foundation but it was a long time since you came back. It was a showpiece for Aix which added to the Cezanne another great master. Today I witnessed the degradation and humiliation of the great Museum Vasarely. Degradation because the humidity is filtering from various parts, stairs, floors, doors worn down. The imiliazione because in the halls was preparing a banquet simultaneously in several rooms. If Vasarely had been alive, he would have allowed or would immediately revoked the mandate to the members of the session. the Foundation and its Director? I believe in the latter. The works ... Most are so deteriorated that are unreadable. Nothing has to do with the Museum for only a short time ago! How sad! Manuela and Alessandro Gori

  • We discovered this Foundation a little by chance. The work of Vasarely is highlighted. Before starting the visit read the bio of Vasarely... then discover the various tables and their optical effects. Upstairs you will have another view on the works and you can also access the temporary exhibition.

  • A museum dedicated to the works of Vasarely. I saw him at the opening in 1977 and rediscovered by returning to Aix three years ago. Since I'm taking all my friends. Only disappointment, the State of some very damaged mosaic works. But they are n course of restoration!

  • 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.
