The Autonomy of Color

By the enf of the 1950 decade, Carlos Cruz-Diez proposed himself a personal and artistic challenge that would earn him a personal and artistic challenge that would earn him a privileged spot in the history of art in the 20th century: freeing color from form, presenting an ever changing circumstance, autonomus and unstable that could live beyond the support. From the basis of his plastiv speech in 1959, all the work of Cruz-Diez has been a long process of investigaction directed to discover, create and propose new ways to adress the color phenomenom in art. 

The exhibition gathers a wide sample of his research from a selection of some of his most recent works.
