The exhibition includes paintings, sculptures and installations from the Argentinian-born artist from the 1950s to the present day. This is the largest exhibition in France for Le Parc’s work since the 1980s (NB – Le Parc was expelled from France in May 1968, after participating in the Atelier Populaire and its protests against major institutions but now lives and works in Cachan, Paris).
Julio le Parc is a very important figure in the development of Op Art. He was a founding member of G.R.A.V. (English version is the Visual Art Research Group) which was a pre-cursor to kinetic and Op Art. Born in 1928, Julio is now 84 and is still as relevant today as he was in the late 1950s and 1960s.
The exhibition takes up over 2,000 square metres of space in the Palais de Tokyo and runs from February 27 to May 13, 2013. Entrance to the Palais de Tokyo is €10 (concessions pay less). The Palais is open from 12 noon to 12 midnight every day except Tuesday.
