Create an itinerary including Fondation Vasarely
Together with architects John Sonnier and Dominique Ronsseray, Victor Vasarely established Fondation Vasarely in 1976. The trio wanted to promote "art for all" and of the "city of tomorrow." Study 42 large works of art, each 6 by 8 m (20 ft by 26 ft.) Vasarely's seven "cells" are hexagonal rooms that measure 14 m (46 ft) across and 11 m (36 ft) high. The French National Commission named the foundation a historic monument almost 40 years later.

  • I really loved the site, the history and the artwork in it. It's a bit sad not much more can be made of it all. I had a snack off a machine. Why not have perhaps a tent offering fresh coffee and some snacks outside the building? It's a very interesting site but greatly undervalued and underused
  • One of the worst art experiences I had in a while. Of all of the expositions just one has some information in English and when you buy a ticket no one informes you about it. Poorly produced exhibitions, many works are “temporarily gone” or demaged , dust and fingerprints on the actual wall art (??!!), the outside area works are in a terrible condition. Staff was pretty nice though, but forgot to include important information for non-French speaking tourists before I already spent 15€ to see this ;).
