Galería RGR is pleased to present Julio Le Parc’s debut in a gallery in Mexico. Julio Le Parc: Visual Encounters, with curatorial text by Daniel Montero Fayad, includes seminal and recent works across two-dimensional and three- dimensional pieces, showcasing the artist’s dedication to experimentation and research. Through his work, Le Parc sought the development and exploration of abstract visual languages. In the exhibit, five influential series, Surface-Couleur (1959 - 2022), Lumière (1959 - 2022), Continuels-Mobils (1960 - 2022), Déplacement (1963 - 2022), and Alchimie (1988 - 2022) are on view. They study Le Parc’s experimentation with light and color relationships through complex canvas compositions and acrylic mobiles. In recent works, such as Alchimie 499 (2022), Le Parc continues his work into chromatic shapes, dots, and lines, interrogating color relationships, exhibited at the show alongside his signature suspended pieces of steel and plexiglass. Gathered together at Galería RGR, each series reveals the exploration of the field of lights, movement, and perception, which combine to formalise Le Parc’s status as a leading experimental artist and to foreground the impact of his practice on the development of contemporary art.
