about Carlos Cruz-Díez
French-Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez lived and worked in Paris since 1960. 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 established him as one of the key 20th-century thinkers in the realm of colour.
Carlos Cruz-Diez’s visual art explores the perception of colour as an autonomous reality evolving in space and time, unaided by form or support, in a perpetual present. His artworks are housed in prestigious permanent collections at 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
