”Julio Le Parc: Form-Action,” Nov. 18-March 19, 2017; Pérez Art Museum Miami, downtown, pamm.org
Along with the current blockbuster revealing unknown notebooks of the late Jean-Michel Basquiat (through Oct. 16), PAMM will showcase more than 100 works by kinetic artist Julio Le Parc in the Argentine artist’s first U.S. museum survey. Included are installations created between 1958 and 2013. Many of the works are participatory, breaking down the traditional barriers between artwork and viewer. One of the segments from the show will be three light-drenched rooms, intended to disorient gallery-goers.
