Foundation Vasarely, Aix-en-Provence

(3.6/5 based on 240 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.

  • In the works, but it does mean that it is still alive! As you enter the building you receive in the face a universe of shapes, colours, volumes of prospects! Depending on the location of the room where you are everything will change. It's great! and no matter that the benches are faded, there is work, same scaffolds are important because they make us look up and see another way the works of VASARELY. We will come back.

  • As others have noted, this museum is not in a great shape and needs some repairs. In fact, there were 2 rooms which were not accessible as refurbishment works were ongoing. It is also confusing as to ...  more »
  • Nice visit which is worth a visit because the works are really beautiful and original. Too bad they are so damaged by the time... Luckily the place is under renovation! (but so some parts are not visible)

  • 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.
