Julio Le Parc Form into Action at PAMM

Julio Le Parc (b. 1928, Mendoza, Argentina) is a central and influential figure in participatory kinetic art, who has been largely overlooked in the United States, until now. Form into Action, which is the first solo museum exhibition and only comprehensive survey of the artist’s work in North America, will be presented across the Museum’s two spacious and adaptable special exhibition galleries and will feature more than 100 works produced by Le Parc between 1958 and 2013.

The exhibition will explore how the artist sought to ‘demystify art’, breaking down barriers between artwork, viewer and museum. Comprised of more than 100 works, including large-scale installations and rarely seen works on paper and archival material, the exhibition delves into the artist’s groundbreaking innovations in the fields of light, movement and perception, developed over the course of an almost sixty-year career.

Form into Action examines the breadth of Le Parc’s interests and methodologies, focusing primarily on his investigation into notions of spectator-ship and his continuous quest to engage and empower viewers. Works shown will come from numerous public institutions and private collections from Europe, Latin America and the United States. On view during Art Basel Miami Beach 2016, Form into Action will expose tens of thousands of local residents and visitors to Le Parc’s work for the first time.

 

Pérez Art Museum, Miami
From November 18, 2016 to March 19, 2017
