Since the 1950s, Carlos Cruz-Diez concretizes the dream, formulated almost a century ago by Vassily Kandinsky to make the painting "a floating being in the air".

In the monumental halls of the Palais d'Iéna, home to the Conseil économique, social et environnemental, will be presented a chromatic environment conceived by the artist in dialogue with the building of Auguste Perret, manifesto of its architecture and brutalism. Versatile in architectural integrations since the 1970s, Cruz-Diez has been careful to fully allow the expression of the genius loci - the spirit of the place. Thus, the chromatic subtlety of the works will agree with the delicate nuances of colored concrete Auguste Perret or, in other words, with the sensuality of its Brutalist epidermis.

Curator : Matthieu Poirier
