Julio Le Parc will today be the most prominent figure of The Night of Museums, the expected event in the city of Buenos Aires, which will take place between 20 and 3 in the morning on Sunday. His work can be seen in various public and private spaces for free, and he himself is responsible for an extraordinary environment: the illumination of the obelisk. On Friday night, Le Parc was in the process of preparation and spoke specifically to the public in Infobae .
After decades of research in light and motion, Le Parc, one of the great representatives of kinetic and contemporary art, will use the technique mapping for the first time to project a large number of works and effects in one of the largest Buenos Aires emblems. It is an unprecedented fact that within the framework of the night of the museums and in the national tribute Julio Le Parc-Un visionary organized by the Ministry of Culture in the city of Buenos Aires. It will be a free and never before seen cultural event in the public space.
But there will be much more Le Parc.
In the National Museum of Fine Arts on Libertador Avenue, there will be talks about the work of the great Argentine artist and some of them will also be using sign language, specially designed for hearing impaired or hearing impaired. The exhibition "Transition Buenos Aires-Paris (1955-1959)" by MNBA examines from more than 100 works the artistic, aesthetic and conceptual development of a key figure in international art, a pioneer in kinetic and optical art. During the opening of the Buenos Aires-Paris crossing, Le Parc told a small but important story, when he was still a teenager and participated with a friend in a picture competition at the zoo in Buenos Aires, a competition he won. But what enlightens his eyes, which reveal the experience, is not so much to have taken the first place or the "valuable book of impressionism" he had as a prize, but Antonio Berni was in the jury. Thus, shocked that he had been chosen by a referent, Le Parc knew that in his veins there was art, that light came out of his eyes.
