The Fondation Vasarely is still in a poor state of repair with paint peeling off the artworks and the walls. A multi-venue exhibition entitled Multiplicite has amazing works but the catalogue won't be ready until after the show. Sad really.

Even if you are not a experienced art lover it is worth to visit the Vasarely Foundation. Each work has opportunities to study, although they look very simple at first sight. Public attention is needed to keep the museum running and renovating.

Visited with kids (aged 6 and 7). All enjoyed it but it's a bit expensive for a relatively small museum, and the place is not very welcoming, both because the exterior is very dreary despite the architecture and because the staff were very unfriendly. Avons visité avec enfants (6 et 7). Sommes bien amusés, mais c'est un peu cher pour... More

Huge and impressive works of art (and illusion), combining artistic visions with excellent craftsmanship, as some of the hanging tapestries demonstrate. Nowadays much of it can probably be replicated by basic visual software packages - Victor Vasarely had to use his imagination and understanding of science and geometry. The foundation in slightly outside the centre of Aix but very easy... More

A small gallery of the work of Vasarely very thought provoking and cleaver his ability to play with the mind is excellent.

Vasarely was a master of OPArt using many different mediums. Truly an amazing visual experience born in a world before computers. Just trying to figure how he created these is an education itself.

This is all about Vasarely. If you know his work you will be amazed and if this is your first introduction to him you will become a fan.

This is a little difficult to get to but well worth the effort. A very good commemoration to the works of this great 20th century artist. Building is designed using his concepts and large sculpture in front is m4emorable. Currently going thru some renovation that will make it even better. Seeing his work in monumental scale is very impressive.

Surprising setting in Aix, quite away from centre and close to highway. The building (a set of 8 hexagons) is nice and the pieces of art in the inside are just breath-taking (4x6 pieces, never seen elsewhere). The building needs repairs and clearly lack funding; such a pity for this unique place.

I hadn't heard of Vasarely but he was clearly in the big league (literally and metaphorically) of 20th century abstract and op art. This building holds some of his giant pieces, some painted, others made of tiles, plastic, perspex, glass and tapestry. Well worth the visit. To get there, take the no. 2 bus (destination Bouffan) from the Rotonde (big... More
