The Franco-Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez (Caracas, 1923) has lived and worked in Paris since 1960. He is a major protagonist in the field of Kinetic and Optical art, a movement that encourages “an awareness of the instability of reality.” His body of work has established him as one of the key 20th century thinkers in the realm of color.
Carlos Cruz-Diez’s visual art explores theperception of color as an autonomous reality
evolving in space and time, unaided by form or support, in a perpetual present.
His artworks are housed in permanent collections of prestigious institutions such as:
Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York
Tate Modern, London
Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris
Centre Pompidou, Paris
Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
Wallraf-Richartz Museum, Cologne
