Julio Le Parc (b. 1928 in Mendoza, Argentina, lives in Paris) is one of the most influential artists of the late twentieth century. With his first major institutional solo exhibition in Germany since 1972, the Kunstmuseen Krefeld rediscover the oeuvre of the co-founder of the artist group GRAV. In Haus Lange and a few spaces in the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum, various aspects of visitor participation in his works are presented in an exhibition layout: from kinetic objects to game installations and surveys to labyrinths. At the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum, the show continues with large, expansive light installations, for which Le Parc is internationally renowned. Le Parc’s innovation and political aspirations are evident in the interactivity and experimental nature of his approach.
Curator: Katia Baudin
The exhibition is part of the series of dialogues between Haus Lange and Haus Esters. The artists Adolf Luther and Julio Le Parc meet under the title Interactive Spatial Experiences.
To celebrate the end of the exhibition duo, Kunstmuseen Krefeld cordially invites you to enjoy the interactive spatial experiences of Adolf Luther and Julio Le Parc during our Finissage Sunday. Guided tours in all three houses - Haus Esters, Haus Lange, KWM - on different topics invite to a lively exchange and creative play stations are waiting for young and old in the context of the "Platzspiele". One of the highlights of the day will be a dialogue tour by Katia Baudin and Dr. Magdalena Broska, Research Director of the Adolf Luther Foundation. The two exhibition curators will provide fascinating background information on Luther's work during their tour of the exhibition. At the end of the evening, Katia Baudin and Keren Detton, Director of the FRAC Grand Large - Hauts-de-France in Krefeld's partner city Dunkerque, will talk about how a museum can be a platform for interaction - for exchange, shared experiences and, not least, shared fun. And the winner of Julio Le Parc's art raffle will be drawn. Those who have filled in and handed in a questionnaire from Le Parc can soon be the owner of an original work of art!
You can relax from the exciting exhibitions and the varied program in the gardens of Haus Lange and Haus Esters. Dom's Catering offers snacks, coffee, cool drinks and cocktails.
