Carlos Cruz-Diez. Color in Space and Time
February 06 - July 04, 2011

Celebrating sixty years of Carlos Cruz-Diez’s artistic production, the Cruz-Diez Foundation and the Museum of Fine Arts – Houston are exhibiting a large-scale retrospective of this central figure of contemporary art. They joined forces to bring together more than 150 artworks, many of which belong to the permanent collection of the Foundation. This monumental exhibition (extended over 2500m2) traces a personal journey through Cruz-Diez's reflections on color phenomena, and also places the artist into a key period of art history from the late 1940s to today.

The retrospective is a major event for art lovers eager to discover or rediscover Carlos Cruz-Diez's international career. From rarely seen figurative artworks to interactive series, architectural projects and integration in public spaces, no aspect of what we know today as an exceptional achievement on color will be left aside.

To accompany this retrospective, the Cruz-Diez Foundation and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston have produced a major catalogue compiling information concerning the conceptual and technical stages of the artist's work.
