My Art Guru Alex Diaz gave an amazing surprise yesterday by inviting me to the preview of the much awaited exhibition of Dynamo at the Grand Palais. The exhibition that celebrates 100 years of movement in art (Kinetic Art) . Portraying the most important artists of the century from Calder to Kapoor. Curated in over 4000 meters, you feel you are in the middle of Art-Disneyland waiting with wonder what the next piece will be. You find yourself in front of interesting mirrors, walking side to side in front of a piece to see how it moves with you or inside a room filled with “smoke” changing colors, some kind of parallel dimension. A little cultural fact is that Kinetic Art is one of the strongest movements in Art during the 20th century, and still in this one, when I say movement I compare it with other movements (Surrealism, Impressionism, Cubism, Realism). Yet the first artists to work with this where the impressionists Manet, Monet and Degas. Another curious fact is that some of the most important artists are from Latin-America (yes we are proud), Venezuela (Carlos Cruz Diez , Jesus Rafael Soto, Alejandro Otero) among many others. If you are in Paris please go to the exhibition you will have fun and explore new worlds and if you are not but there may be a Kinetic art exhibition, don’t miss it!
Be in Movement,
