‘Let’s move!’ – la Patinoire Royale

La Patinoire Royale

26 November 15 - 26 March 16

A.R.M. visited the exhibition Let’s move! in La Patinoire Royale, in Brussels, a space dedicated to the creation of retrospectives of visual arts and design, between 1950 and 1980.

 The curator, Arnauld Pierre, selected a group of works from representative international artists of the kinetic art movement. Let’s move! was created in collaboration with the gallery Denise René (Paris) – the place where this art movement was established, in 1955, with the exhibition Le Mouvement, when Vasarely’s Yellow Manifest was also introduced.

Let’s Move! brings to light important works, which defy the spectator as a passive viewer and encourage his interaction and movement to activate a different perception and the artwork itself. This exhibition questions the relation between the spectator and the work of art as well as the materialisation of the work and its support, bringing us back to the pure use of new mechanisms of perception through color, light, and movement. Among the vast list of artists are Jesùs Rafael Soto, Victor Vasarely, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Francisco Sobrino, Antonio Asis and Julio Le Parc.

A perceptive and sensorial experience, as implied in the works and in the title of exhibition, Let’s Move! can be visited until the 26th of March 2016.
