Julio Le Parc / Lumière

2015-11-22 - 2016-04-17

Julio Le Parc experiments with the experience of art and its environment. Using simple, reflective material, he creates large, spectacular and entrancing light installations. Using lenses and built-in motors, light is set in motion.

Julio Le Parc (b. 1928) is originally from Argentina, but lives in France since the 1960s. He was one of the founding members of the Groupe de Recherche d'Art Visuel (GRAV), a group of artists who experimented with ideas of interaction and staged engaging events on streets and squares in Paris during the 1960s. In dialogue with contemporary digital art, Le Parc's ground-breaking work has found new currency and his kinetic installations is shown in exhibitions the world over. This is the artist's first solo presentation in Scandinavia.

The exhibition is produced by Bildmuseet.
