Julio Le Parc was born in 1928 in Mendoza, Argentina. He is a central and influential figure in the participatory kinetic art, which found its most complete expression in Latin America influenced by modernists such as Max Bill, László Moholy-Nagy, Carlos Cruz-Diez, and Jesus Soto, among others.

Form into Action is the first solo exhibit of an artist like Le Parc in Miami. It was curated by a comprehensive study of the artist work. This amazing exhibit takes place at the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) until March 19th. It is made up of more than 100 works by Le Parc within the period of 1958 to 2013. The exhibit shows how the artist tries to demystify art and make it accessible to everyone. So he shorts distance between the viewer and the work.

The tour has up to 100 works, including large-scale facilities that have been barely exhibited to the public. The installation consists of works on papers and footage. The exhibit looks into the artist’s innovation in the use of light, movement, and perception worked on for more than sixty years of his artistic career.

Form into Action studies Le Parc’s methodology and focuses on his research about viewers’ perception and his intention of involving them. The exhibited works come from different public institutions and private collections from Europe, Latin America, and the United States.

This exhibit, Form into Action, presents to locals and visitors in Miami, the works of a renowned artist like Le Parc. The way he works light and movement at his playful stage, allows viewers to participate in a sort of relationship with his work from the moment they enter the room. Movement, sounds, forms and results will connect you with your inner child. Don’t miss it!
